Soul Stirrer with embodied faith in action – Sally Norvell decided to become a filmmaker on the set of “Paris, Texas.”

She has been an actress, singer, and filmmaker –  most recently directing, producing and writing the documentary “Saving David Powell”.

Sally writes,

“Saving David Powell” is a call to action to stop the execution of David Powell in real time.  He is scheduled to be executed by the State of Texas on June 15, 2010, and there is no legal recourse left to stop this from happening.  He has spent 32 hard years on America’s most brutal death row, and even after all this time, with no history of violence for decades, they still mean to take him out and kill him.

David’s case is not one of straight innocence, but it is clear that this man does not deserve to be executed.  If ever there were a case for clemency, this is it.

“Saving David Powell” asks for a miracle – and asks the viewer to participate in creating one.

    I really enjoyed this interview. To acknowledge this information can transform our role in the judicial system by asking us to play a part in making change. Our limitations should not have the ability to end a life and we should not support the system that does. It is too fallible and we are too fallible.

  2. Mary Bayley says:

    I’m thankful for Sally and for people like her who are willing to fight against the death penalty, something that regardless of guilt or innocence has no place in a civilized society. This is not a popular stance, particularly in Texas and it takes courage and commitment to speak out and to work as tirelessly as she and others have. As a friend of many years I am also very proud of her and all her efforts.

  3. Anne Norvell says:

    As Sally’s mother, I’m so very proud of my brave outspoken daughter, trying to do the right thing in a harsh unfeeling world.

    I bet his victims wish they would have had another 32 years. It is finally his turn.
