OCTOBER 27 – NOVEMBER 3
In 1992, two Korean-American brothers running a shoe store in South Central Los Angeles share a friendship with an 11-year-old black girl who likes hanging out with them. As news of the verdict in the beating case filters down during the day, their livelihood is upended when riots break out and everything they’ve built in the community is threatened by violence and looting.
Dir: Justin Chon / 2017 / US / 94 min
“Justin Chon looks at bigotry through the eyes of two Korean brothers in L.A.’s South Central in 1992. The result is hardass yet hypnotically beautiful.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Nodding to Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and Kevin Smith’s Clerks, this sophomore feature exemplifies the grunge and angst-ridden energy of the 90s, with a humorous streak as frank as its racially charged title.” – Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader
“Chon’s dense, ambitious, and observant film is full of impressive craft and insight.” – Inkoo Kang, TheWrap
