CLEMENCY SCREENING AT THE 2010 FLAGSTAFF FILM FESTIVAL
The Flagstaff Film Festival 2010 is pleased as punch to announce a few of our films that will be screened this August in splendid Flagstaff Arizona!

CLEMENCY, dir. Joseph Albanese
Arthur Poe (Cris D’Annunzio) is a sadistic killer who likes to torture his victims. In 1993, he was captured and subsequently convicted by the state of Virginia for several gruesome murders. Poe received a sentence of death. Years later and days before his execution, the newly elected governor granted Poe clemency based on a testimony given by a forensic psychologist during Poe’s murder trial. The testimony convinced the governor that Poe deserves psychiatric care rather than death. Many are outraged by the governor’s act of leniency. A reporter (Maury Morgan) takes on Poe in an interview seeking to shed light on the emotionally charged topic. What she learns can never be forgotten or forgiven.
