The Road to Huntsville

The Road to HuntsvilleT0929129520
The Road to Huntsville blends research with fictional storytelling, peppered with footage from her trip to Texas. Stephanie Ridings explores the strange and uncomfortable phenomenon of British women who fall in love with men on death row. In Livingston, Texas, the inmates of death row are housed just a forty-five minute drive down open highways to Huntsville, their final destination. In Britain are women who write to them, put in touch through hundreds of websites where prisoners can advertise for a pen pal, or humanitarian services that try to alleviate the harsh quality of life. Stephanie relates with compassion and a macabre humour how she came to stand outside the Huntsville prison as an inmate was executed and the talks she had with a former prison warden as she tells the fictional story of a researcher who falls in love with an inmates.
