California Fresh Film Series: "Romeo is Bleeding"
Thursday, February 1, 2018
(2015, 93 MINUTES, NR)
The Crocker is proud to present four fresh documentaries that share some of the diverse stories and compelling individuals who make up our state. Each screening will be introduced by John Lightfoot of California Humanities, the grant-making nonprofit that helped fund these films through its California Documentary Project. A Q&A with the filmmakers or subjects will follow some screenings.
Romeo is Bleeding follows Donté Clark, a young poet growing up in Richmond, California, a city haunted by a fatal turf war. Donté and the like-minded youth of the city mount an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with the hope of starting a dialogue about violence in the city. Will Richmond crush Donté’s idealism, or will Donté find a solution to end Richmond’s cycle of trauma? Donté Clark and D’Neise Robinson will be present for a post-film Q&A.
