CHICAGO — A documentary chronicling the work of two prominent Chicago activists is screening at the Gene Siskel Film Center this week.

“Unapologetic” tells the story of Janaé Bonsu and Ambrell “Bella BAHHS” Gambrell, two Chicago abolitionists who fought for justice following the killing of Rekia Boyd by Chicago police officer Dante Servin in 2012 and the death of Laquan McDonald at the hands of former officer Jason Van Dyke in 2014.

The film, directed by Ashley O’Shay and produced by Triibe co-founder and filmmaker Morgan Elise Johnson, runs through Thursday at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St. Get your tickets here.
