Meet Film Director, Paul Hamann, and Reprieve founder and Director, Clive Stafford Smith, at the screening of the documentary Fourteen Days in May.                                                                               

Clive Stafford Smith and Paul Hamann will be visiting Wadham for a screening of Paul’s film, ‘Fourteen Days in May’.

This award winning documentary, shot inside Death Row in Mississippi in 1987, follows the last 14 days in the life of Edward Johnson, who had been held there for eight years. It concludes with a final  interview 20 minutes before his execution in the gas chamber for a murder he was later proved not to have committed.

Clive Stafford Smith, the Founder of Reprieve, was Edward Johnson’s lawyer. Paul Hamann, a former Head of Documentaries at the BBC, directed the film.

The screening will conclude with a Q and A session, chaired by the Warden, Ken Macdonald QC.

This event forms part of the Wadham Human Rights Forum, a continuing series of lectures, seminars and discussions hosted by the Wadham College Law Society and open to all.
