At the Death House Door



Director/Producer: Steve James, Peter Gilbert
Executive Producer: Gordon Quinn
Status: Production
In production for The Independent Film Channel...

At the Death House Door is the story of the wrongful execution of Carlos DeLuna and the Death House Chaplain, Pastor Carroll Pickett, who spent the last day of DeLuna's life with him. The feature documentary, currently in production, follows the remarkable career journey of Pickett, culminating in the story of DeLuna, a convict whose execution bothered Pickett more than any other. He firmly believed the man was innocent, and the film will track the investigative efforts of a team of Chicago Tribune reporters who have turned up evidence that strongly suggests he was. The documentary takes a very personal and intimate look at the death penalty in Texas, the first state to do lethal injection. Pickett was present for the first lethal injection in 1981.

At the Death House Door is a Kartemquin Films Production in association with the Chicago Tribune.You can read more by going here.
