After 23 years on Death Row a convicted murdered petitions the court asking to be executed. But as he tells his story, it gradually becomes clear that nothing is quite what it seems. The Fear of Thirteen is a stylistically daring experiment in storytelling, in effect a one-man play constructed from a four-day interview. In a monologue that is part confessional and part performance, Nick, the sole protagonist, tells a tale with all the twists and turns of classic crime drama. But as the story unfolds it reveals itself as something much deeper, an emotionally powerful meditation on the redemptive power of love and literature. A final shocking twist casts everything in a new light. This is a work in progress from the director of In the Shadow fo the Moon, The Flaw and Thin Ice (also showing at this year’s festival).
