Clemency is an upcoming American Drama film directed by Chinonye Chukwu and written by Chinonye Chukwu. "Clemency" by Chinonye Chukwu, drama about the death penalty, and The Souvenir, by Joanna Hogg, a family chronicle, are the two great winners of Sundance 2019. The two women filmmakers, therefore, crown a record that has once again been set in the feminine talent to take it to the top of the record, both in fiction and documentary contests. Chukwu, in addition, is the first African-American woman to win the grand prize of the American dramatic competition throughout the history of the event.
Already in 2018, the female filmmakers took the best director awards in the four competitive sections of the independent film contest, highlighting The Miseducation of Cameron Post, by Desiree Akhavan and with Chlöe Grace Moretz (Suspiria) in the cast, with the Grand Jury prize from the American fiction section. Next, the full list of Sundance 2019.
Principal photography commenced on New York 20, 2018 in Florida, United States and concluded on August 11, 2019. The film is set for release on December 27, 2019.
