“Clemency” debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and has been making its way through various other festivals before opening in limited release this past week. At its center is a wonderful performance from Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard but under the strong direction of Chinonye Chukwu. That direction and vision guides other elements of the film, including its understated but nonetheless effective cinematography by Eric Branco. Eric was kind enough to take a few minutes to talk about his work on the film and how to helped guide Chukwu’s vision. Take a listen down below.
