Zipoy produced the film with Megan Kingery (Broadway’s Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812) Gahlia Eden (You Can’t Do That) and Jess Weiss (American Insurrection).

Jason Biggs, Aunjanue Ellis, Anabelle Acosta and Chisa Hutchinson exec produced, with Latresa Baker and Jolene Noelle on board as associate producers.

“This is a film about all the nuanced little ways in which notions of supremacy distance white people from other humans,” said Hutchinson. “It’s a long ramp with a barely perceptible incline that ultimately leads to someone standing by and watching while a black person is killed. Or maybe even doing the killing.”

“When speaking about The Subject, it is often assumed to be an actual documentary because the film hews close to life as we know it,” said Zipoy. “It is achingly real, and more heartbreaking by the day. I am grateful to Chisa for her bold script and the actors for their amazing commitment to tell a delicate, yet hard-hitting story.”

“The Subject is a topical and relevant film about the pitfalls of many of today’s documentaries,” added Brett Rogalsky, Gravitas Ventures Manager of Acquisitions. “It is as timely as it is entertaining, and Gravitas is thrilled to be bringing it to audiences this fall.”

The Subject has won more than 30 awards at film festivals around the world. Myriad Pictures is handling the international sales rights.

ICM Partners negotiated the acquisition deal on behalf of the filmmakers with Brett Rogalsky of Gravitas Ventures.
