Starring: Wanda Jean Allen
Director: LIz Garbus
A raw, uncompromising look at the death penalty from one of America's leading filmmakers. In 2001, Wanda Jean Allen was given a lethal injection by the state of Oklahoma, making her the first black woman to be executed in America in fifty years. "The Execution Of Wanda Jean" chronicles the methodical way the state of Oklahoma proceeds to execute Wanda Jean Allen, a convicted murderess with a low IQ bordering on retardation. As pleas for clemency and legal maneuvers are gradually exhausted, there's a chilling inevitability to Wanda's plight, which she bears with a rare strength and introspection. A uniquely American story, award-winning filmmaker Liz Garbus deftly reveals a portrait of simple human dignity in the face of inevitable death.
