Artist Chaz Guest paints Troy Davis

Artist Chaz Guest is known for painting the portrait of Thurgood Marshal that hangs in President Obama's private study as well as the portrait of Obama that was used for part of his inauguration. Now he focuses his artistic talent on Troy Davis, a man on death row in Georgia. Troy Davis was convicted of murdering a Georgia police officer in 1991. Nearly two decades later, Davis remains on death row — even though the case against him has fallen apart. This film was directed by David Serota and produced by David Serota, Allison Behrstock, and Roger Wolfson. It was shot on location in the studio of Chaz Guest.
