Title: Death Penalty: Another Murder - Long Version
Description: Cruel punishment, political tool, state sanctioned killing - these are some other names for the death penalty.

South Korea is abolitionist in practice and has not executed anyone for 15 years since 30 December 1997, however its law still maintains the death penalty. A special abolition bill was proposed at every legislative session since the 15th National Assembly, however the bill lapsed without taking it to a vote. In 2010, Constitutional Court ruled that the death penalty is constitutional.

This film details the story so far and features diverse people, including Kim Dae-jung, former death row inmate and Amnesty International Prisoner of Conscience and the 15th President of South Korea, speaking on the death penalty.
