Unapologetic - Filmmaker Q&A
"Unapologetic" - 1hr 26min feature film - After two Black Chicagoans are killed, millennial organizers challenge an administration complicit in state violence against its residents. Told through the lens of JanaƩ and Bella, two fierce abolitionist leaders, Unapologetic is a deep look into the Movement for Black Lives, from the police murder of Rekia Boyd to the election of Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

Director/Producer Ashley O'Shay & Producer Morgan Elise Johnson will join us for a virtual Q&A on December 8th at 5:00pm CST.

Special musical preshow with Sam Trump at 4:30pm!

Local activist Troi Valles will moderate a discussion with the filmmakers before taking questions from the community.

Registration is FREE (donations encouraged). Once registered, you will receive a link to the full feature film and an invite to the Q&A Zoom event on December 8th.

"Unapologetic" captures a tense and polarizing moment in Chicagos fight for the livelihood of its Black residents. The film follows JanaƩ and Bella, two young abolitionist organizers, as they work within the Movement for Black Lives to seek justice for Rekia Boyd and Laquan McDonald, two young Black people killed by Chicago police. They aim to elevate a progressive platform for criminal justice to a police board led by Lori Lightfoot and a complicit city administration, while also elevating leadership by women and femmes.
