*We caught up with award-winning director, writer and actor Addison Henderson to dish about his feature narrative debut, the post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller “Givers of Death,” which recently premiered at the American Black Film Festival and won best screenplay.

The story centers on a hitman’s quest for peace as he navigates through a city on the brink of collapse due to an incurable virus that has wiped out one-third of the world’s population. Many infected commit suicide to end their agony. Those who cannot bring themselves to end their own lives hire professionals.

In our exclusive conversation with Henderson, he explains the personal inspiration behind the project and what he hopes views take away from some of the dark themes explored in the film.

Check out the trailer below.
