PRODIGAL won the 2021 Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays.

Gerald Hanks's faith-based feature-length screenplay PRODIGAL won the 2021 Kairos Prize® for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays. The screenplay, based on a short story by Houston writer Oscar Salazar, involves a power struggle in a historically Black Atlanta church. Ethan, the newly-installed white pastor, struggles to keep his job when Marcus, the scheming associate pastor, uncovers a troubling secret from Ethan’s youth that could tear their congregation apart. The contest judges praised PRODIGAL's "themes of forgiveness and redemption perfectly exemplify the purpose of the Kairos prize in an engaging and culturally relevant way."
