Directed by Stacy Peralta and narrated by Forest Whitaker. Touches on everything from the Watts Riots to the original gangs in the 60s, before they were called gangs. To the start of the Bloods & Crips, up into current day. Some of the interviews with gang members left me really thinking. And Forest's voice really makes the narration seem so powerful. I grew up in a middle class area, but went to high school in the ghetto, and ended up living there for about 15 years before recently moving somewhere better. Where I lived wasn't nearly as bad as the parts of South Central & Watts they show in the movie. But I saw a lot of similar shit happen. Even with the glimmer of hope this movie gives, it's still pretty bleak and depressing. But it's a very honest and real look at a huge problem in America, one that's not going to go away. They interviewed the founding members of the original clubs (gangs) who said they formed them due to the fact they couldn't get accepted into the boy scouts because they were black. one quote that really stuck out to me was about 2 difference research teams findings where the levels of post traumatic stress syndrome found children living South Central LA exhibit is even greater than children living in the Gaza Strip. The montage of Mothers who had to bury their, no words, just their faces with the name/age of their son underneath. I found this part truly heartbreaking. This is a great documentary for anyone to see, it digs a lot deeper than the news stories you hear about drive by shootings, it gets into the heart of the problem and addresses it head on.
