Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner CLEMENCY centers on prison warden Bernadine Williams (Alfre Woodard), whose years of carrying out death row executions is beginning to take a toll on her. 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. Chinonye Chukwu's film is being heralded by Indiewire as "a mature star-driven vehicle elevated by a brilliant performance that deserves all the awards it can get."
