Synopsis

Premiere. Compelling and often chilling documentary exploring the work of Fred A Leuchter Jnr, the man credited with standardising America's electric chairs and making the contraptions more humane. Later in life he examined samples from the bricks of Auschwitz for traces of cyanide and, failing to find any, joined the ranks of the reviled Holocaust deniers. Directed by Errol Morris
