我們進食,為了生存;死囚進食,迎向死亡。最後的晚餐對死囚來說,究竟蘊含了甚麼意義?導演Lars Bergstrom及Mats Bigert想要呈現的是,在同一餐桌上,這禮儀所給予的,是人類的恩典與祝福,抑或是人類的殘暴與偽善?本片讓我們從歷史角度探索最後晚餐的原意與現代意義的差別,賦予了新角度去看待「死刑」。

 

It is absolutely normal that we eat in order to survive; but for death row inmates, eating can be a prelude to death. What are the meanings of the “last supper” to them? “To confront this paradoxical ritual is to be drawn into a debate about how human mercy and cruelty can share the same dinner table,” say directors Lars Bergstrom and Mats Bigert. In this documentary, we gaze through the historical meanings of the “last supper” as well as the contemporary use of this ritual, to understand the death penalty from a new perspective.
