Congratulations are in order for PNP Alumna and filmmaker Chinonye Chukwu who made history at the Sundance Film Festival. Chinonye, the director behinds works including Alaskaland (2012) and Clemency (2019), won the Grand Jury Prize for the U.S. Dramatic 2019 competition. She is the first Black woman to win this prize and joins the ranks of previous winners including Ryan Coogler, Desiree Akhavan, Debra Granik. We could not be happier for Chinonye and wish her all the best as more accolades and trophies fill her wall. For more on the award winning Clemency starring Alfre Woodard, click here.
