With unprecedented access and street-level testimony from current and former gang members, the director of Dogtown and Z-Boys and Riding Giants lays bare the history of South LA’s most notorious gangs, chronicling the brutal rivalry that’s consumed hundreds of lives over the past four decades. From the genesis of the city’s gang culture to the shocking, war-zone reality of daily life there, the film charts the rise of the Crips and Bloods and the origins of their deadly feud to paint a stark portrait of modern-day gang life. Narrated by Forest Whitaker.
