Chicken & Egg Pictures is announced its support of the new grantees of the 2021 Project: Hatched program for feature-length documentary impact. Ashley O'Shay and Morgan Johnson's Unapologetic is one of five films in this years cohort. Each film receives a $10,000 grant and tailored mentorship towards their impact campaigns.
“Each of these films tells a story about racial, economic, or workers justice in the United States and marks a critical moment in our social history,” said Program Director Lucila Moctezuma. “Their directors are uniquely positioned to create change and propel us toward a more equitable future, and Chicken & Egg Pictures is excited to support them with funding and programmatic support to further the impact of these important films.”
Unapologetic tells the story of Janaé and Bella BAHHS, two fierce abolitionists in Chicago whose upbringing and experiences shape their activism and views on Black liberation.
