Uploaded by Crandell Movies
In 1992 Chicago, 12-year-old best friends Malik and Eric discover the joys and hardships of growing up in the infamous Cabrini-Green public housing complex (now demolished). They idolize Michael Jordan, compete in jumping contests, and play hooky at the Art Institute. When a shooting in the community challenges everything, they must face the realities of growing up fast. Written and directed by Minhal Baig, the film is produced by Symbolic Exchange, the New York-based production company founded by Crandell Board Member James Schamus, who will join fellow board member Mirissa Neff in a Q&A on stage after the screening.
