A non-profit screening of The Thin Blue Line, an anti-death penalty film by American director Errol Morris, will take place at 6 p.m. on March 3 at the Goethe Institute in Hanoi.

A press release from event organizer DOCLAB says The Thin Blue Line is a 1988 documentary depicting the story of Randall Dale Adams, a man convicted and sentenced to die for a murder he did not commit.

Adams’ case was reviewed and he was released from prison approximately a year after the film’s release.

Film director Errol Mark Morris was put seventh on the list of the world’s 40 best directors by The Guardian in 2003. Also in 2003, his film The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

The Thin Blue Line will be presented in English, with Vietnamese subtitles.

Entrance is free. The Goethe Institute is located on 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi.
