Death Penalty in the Movies

Logo for Death Penalty in the Movies
This PowerPoint presentation includes information about Hollywood depictions of capital punishment. Although movies such as "The Green Mile" and "Dead Man Walking" are typically seen as being opposed to the death penalty, themes in these films often contrast the brutality of the condemned's violence with the caring, sanitary, and error free methods used by the state as executions are carried out.

This presentation could be a useful guide to a teacher seeking to create a provocative presentation on the death penalty and how it is portrayed in movies, but teachers would need significant background knowledge in order to use this to make a presentation. There is also a clear ideological bent that not all teachers would be comfortable with, so some users might want to alter it to address the tone.

Technical Remarks:

At least one slide indicates that there is a video clip to be shown, but the slide just shows a still photo. Instructors would need to alter this or get the videos themselves in order to show clips. Some slides are quite slow to load. Offline use would likely be smoother.
