Headlines about Chicago, Illinois, blare the staggering numbers of young people killed by gun violence. The city’s youth have seen dead bodies on the street and guns falling out of their classmates’ backpacks at school. Children are being shot while playing in the park, or even while seated in the backseat of their parents’ car. Gun violence plagues this mid-western city and murders among black youth aged 15-24 is at an all-time high.
In a new documentary by Moguldom Films, a group of filmmakers goes deep into the youth culture of Chi-town and explores why having a gun — and not ambition — makes you “the man.”
