Legal Memory

80 minutes, 1992

In 1958, Leo Mantha murdered a young man, his lover, on the naval base near Victoria, British Columbia. The resulting trial revealed their relationship but little more. Leo Mantha was executed and became the last man hanged in Canada's westernmost province. Set in the present, this production is a story based on these real events.
