HBO Joins us on the journey to bring Black queer perspectives to the crisis of mass incarceration in America with the release of their original film O.G —A look at the pivotal last five weeks before the release of a veteran inmate, and the unexpected cost of his freedom. THE TENTH + HBO explore how we can assist in amplifying the already strong and steady of the imprisoned members of our community.

Once again, a match made on the edge of media revolution.


Directed by Emmy-winner Madeleine Sackler (The Lottery, HBO’s upcoming documentary It's a Hard Truth Ain't It), O.G. follows Louis (Wright), a maximum-security prison inmate on the cusp of release from a sentence he’s served for the last 24 years. His impending release is upended when he takes new arrival Beecher (Theothus Carter), who is being courted by gang leadership, under his wing. Coming to grips with the indelibility of his crime and the challenge of reentering society, Louis finds his freedom hanging in the balance as he struggles to save Beecher.
