Land of the Free

Author(s): Sebastian Armesto and Dudley Hinton Company: Simple8 Running time: 2h approx

A lot happens in the name of liberty.

In 1865 an actor called John Wilkes Booth strode into a theatre and assassinated President Lincoln. Before pulling the trigger he cried "Sic semper tyrannis" (thus always to tyrants).

Who was he? What led him to it? Why is it relevant now? And is it an American inevitability that the freedom embedded within the Constitution will always grind against the equality the society strives for?
