On the streets of South Los Angeles, more than 15,000 people have been murdered over the past 30 years in an ongoing cycle of gang violence that continues unabated. Helmed by acclaimed director Stacy Peralta (Dogtown and Z Boys, Riding Giants), narrated by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker, and produced by NBA superstar Baron Davis, CRIPS AND BLOODS: MADE IN AMERICA blends gripping archival footage and photos with in-depth interviews of current and former gang members, educators, historians, family members, and experts. Hard-hitting, yet ultimately hopeful, the film not only documents the emergence of the Bloods and the Crips and their growth beyond the borders of South Central, but also offers insight as to how this ongoing tragedy might be resolved.
