About Living Condition

Living Condition is an animated documentary and an interactive project that tells the stories of three families living in close proximity to capital punishment. Living Condition describes capital punishment from three perspectives: from a family who lives with the loss of an executed brother, a second family whose son was wrongfully accused of a capital crime and released under complex circumstances, and a third fighting to prove innocence, while visiting their loved one on Death Row. Living Condition uses the language of graphic novels and animation to tell these families stories in their own words. Told through the eyes of family members innocent of any crime, facing extraordinary circumstances, judgments and challenges, the film is a vehicle for experiences and emotions rarely understood outside of these families.
