Feature Documentary Filmed in New Bedford [PHOTOS]

Award-winning, British born film maker, screenwriter, director and journalist, David Sington, chose New Bedford to shoot part of the scenes of his newest documentary, FEAR OF THIRTEEN. As he and his crew from London and L.A. converged on the Shawmut Diner, he told me the compelling true story of Nick Yarris, an innocent man who spent 23 years in solitary confinement under a sentence of death, fighting for years to clear his name through DNA profiling.

The story, with all its twists and turns of a classic drama, reveals a painful side of human misery and despair. Even though Yarris was innocent, he asked to be executed because he had lost all hope in any reversal. This is a case where truth is stranger and more dramatic than fiction.

The combination of a powerful personal story, drawing on an archive of news reports, articles, photos and a gripping interview with Nick Yarris, the film will tell one of America’s most moving stories of triumph against adversity. The film will premier later this year.
