At last year’s Sundance Film Festival, director Chinonye Chukwu became the first Black woman to win the Grand Jury Prize for Clemency, a devasting and unique depiction of life on death row.
Years of carrying out death row executions have taken a toll on prison warden Bernadine Williams. 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.
How to Watch:
From 17 July 2020, you can watch Clemency by purchasing a virtual screening room ticket via Cine Lumière. You will be directly supporting your local independent cinema – the revenue will be split between the distributor and the venue.
