Straight Outta Hunters Point
Dir. Kevin Epps US 2003
Local filmmaker Kevin Epps (The Black Rock: The Untold Story of the Black Experience on Alcatraz) gives us a portrait of what he knows best, the neighborhood in San Francisco where he grew up, Hunters Point. A complex depiction, Straight Outta Hunters Point covers the turf wars between rival gangs, the vital underground hip-hop scene, the history of how the neighborhood was transformed into a toxic dumping ground, and the everyday life of the community living there. It's a raw, street-level look at life in the projects as seen by an insider. The result is a dramatic portrait of a community in crisis, but one that has persevered. It doesn't get any more real than this. (video; 75m)
