“With a lens that is both arrestingly artistic and at base sympathetic – this film is a portrait of young black males navigating through an unsympathetic world. It never succumbs to clichés that romanticize or dramatize, but provides a rare platform for the quiet voices of those in the experience.” Troy Duster, Emeritus Chancellor’s Professor of Sociology, UC Berkeley
