“The Last 40 Miles,” based on a true story, follows an inmate on his final journey from Texas’s death row in Livingston, to the execution chamber in Huntsville. During the ride, his memories, the scenery flashing by, and the unexpected compassion of the guard escorting him, keep him company.
The animated and rotoscoped short film is the brainchild of British journalist Alex Hannaford, who teamed up with animators Jeff Roth and Lucas Dimick and producer/cinematographer Meg Mulloy. Together with Jennifer Deutrom and Flatblack Films, the group began working on The Last 40 Miles in 2012.
The Last 40 Miles was an official selection at more than 12 festivals around the world, winning:
** Best Animated Film, Maryland International Film Festival **
** Best Animated Feature, Louisville's International Festival of Film **
The film features Austin, Texas, actors Victor Steele, Gary Warner Kent and Al Dinneen, a score by British songwriter Ben Onono, and guitar composition by Julian Mandrake.
