2 weeks before it opens in theaters!

Winner Grand Jury Prize, Sundance Film Festival 2019

L.A. Times film critics Kenneth Turan and Justin Chang have both predicted an Oscar best picture nomination for CLEMENCY.

Years of carrying out death row executions have taken a toll on prison warden Bernadine Williams (played by Alfre Woodard).   As she prepares to execute another inmate, Bernadine must confront the psychological and emotional demons her job creates, ultimately connecting her to the man she is sanctioned to kill.

“A mature star-driven vehicle elevated by a brilliant performance that deserves all the awards it can get.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“Chukwu’s film is further proof that great moviemaking is key to bringing audiences into profound, somber head spaces.” – Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com

“CLEMENCY’s end credits arrive with relief, not because we’re unengaged but because, unlike Bernadine, we’re finally allowed to breathe.” – Benjamin Lee, Guardian
