A Solemn Promise

From director Richard Jellerson, this documentary showcases the incredible lengths our country goes to in order to find and identify remains of military members who are labeled M.I.A. (Missing In Action) These amazing, often hazardous searches are performed in our old war zones and fields of combat by an organization known as DPAA: "Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency", whose motto is "Fulfilling our nation's promise".

Agent Of Death

This compelling drama follows Robert Elliott, who was the third man in history to use electricity to send condemned criminals to their deaths. Even while serving as executioner, he maintained a professional perspective, and alleged that he never casted any judgement on his subjects for their crimes, or accepted blame for his role in their punishment. 

Elliott was employed by six states along the eastern seaboard at the turn of the 19th century, executed 387 men and women in his career, and completed his gripping memoirs accounting this true story only three days before his own death.
