John Singleton's fascinating and articulate portrayal of social problems in inner-city Los Angeles takes the form of a tale of three friends growing up together 'in the 'hood.' Half-brothers Doughboy and Ricky Baker are foils for each other's personalities, presenting very different approaches to the tough lives they face.
A seminal moment in black American cinema, the film offers a sobering account of the aftermath of gun culture. Dark Matter marketing agency has helped promote this screening by partnering with Poetic Unity and Resole to provide free tickets to young people in their communities.
