Now available on Sundance Now: sundancenow.com/the-chair/documentary/2325419. A 1962 Drew Associates documentary, “The Chair” follows lawyers Donald Moore and Louis Nizer as they fight to save Paul Crump from the electric chair. In the tense days leading up to a parole board hearing, the men work tirelessly to rescue Crump through an appeal of rehabilitation – unprecedented in the state of Illinois – and, after the hearing, anxiously await the governor’s verdict. Allowing viewers to experience the high-pressure chain of events along with Crump, his prosecutors and his defenders, the film opens a window into the politics of punishment. "The Chair" won First Prize at the 1962 Cannes Film Festival and was an invited participant at the 1963 New York Film Festival.
