Directed by Patty Anne Dillon
2016, USA, 71 min

Opening night introduction and Q&A with director Patty Anne Dillon.

There Will Be No Stay is a riveting portrait of three men who work in the prison system as they wrestle with their conscience over the death penalty. In a journey of compassion and consequence, through a process shrouded in secrecy, executioners’ lives intersect on the path to discovering freedom from their own personal prisons. Director Patty Anne Dillon has created a powerful documentary about the death penalty largely focused on two men whose job it was to execute prisoners but who quit….and how it changed their lives forever.

Background: Originally from San Diego, California, Patty Dillon studied Theatre performance at the University of Nebraska and worked as a stunt woman in film and television shows, such as Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill and Eastbound and Down. She moved to Omaha, Nebraska and worked with Dana Altman, the late Robert Altman’s grandson and officially made her debut as a filmmaker in 2016 with her first film, There Will Be No Stay. Nominated for five awards including three best feature documentary awards and two audience choice awards, Patty continues to direct and produce independent projects.

Reviews

Strong and compelling. Dillon does a great job presenting the heart of the matter,  from personal experiences to conversations and dilemmas that face society when it chooses to implement state executions rather than imposing life sentences without parole.
