120 YEARS FILM POSTER

Scott final v5.jpg

"120 Years" is a documentary by Matt Nadel, Lucas Cox, and Keera Annamaneni that tells the story of a man named Scott Lewis who was sentenced to life in prison for a crime he did not commit. This poster was made for Agora Media's article on the film.

 

This piece is about the story of Scott Lewis, but also about the hundreds of innocent individuals sentenced to death row or life incarceration each year. Overcrowded dockets push courts to often make hasty and unfounded judgements, an effect that is only heightened if the accused is of a lower socioeconomic background. Especially for those who lack the money to hire lawyers, the justice system is difficult to navigate and even more difficult to maintain a voice in. In this illustration, the size of the accused and the judges contrast drastically in order to depict the imbalance of power. Scott Lewis's letters from his time in prison drift around them, and the letter closest to the viewer is signed "Sincerely, Scott Lewis — An innocent man."
