Bullets In The Hood/The Cleansing/Urbanworld
BULLETS IN THE HOOD: A BED-STUY STORY (USA). Directors: Terence Fisher and Daniel Howard. 19-year old Terrence lives in a housing project in Bedford-Stuyvestant, Brooklyn. 8 of his young friends have been shot and killed in his neighborhood. Terrence is not a drug dealer or gang member -- he's a hip-hop fan who wants to educate his peers about stopping gun violence. He and a friend pick up a camera to tell the story about gun violence in their own lives. Terrence was traumatized when he witnessed his unarmed best friend's murder by a police officer.

THE CLEANSING (USA) . Director: Eddie Smith. A businesswoman named Brooklyn (Rachel Pate) is in town for one day. She spends half the day in the bathroom of one of her clients while battling slight food poisoning. While in the bathroom she gets an emergency phone call form her sister Sharon (Urana Wright), who is watching Brooklyn's 4-year old son named Dimitri (Jokobe Jenkins). Dimitri is having an asthma attack, and Brooklyn has to not only counsel Sharon on where to find Dimitri's medicine, but must also battle her own "attack" as she "tosses her lunch" in between phone calls.

Amidst the turmoil Brooklyn still has to finish the business deal that brought her to town in the first place. Little does she know that she will stumble upon a photo of her clients' sever year old son Evan, who reminds Brooklyn of Dimitri. But that doesn't strike Brooklyn's attention as much as the fact that Evan is also a target for murder...

URBANWORLD (USA). Director: Malik Isasis. Two brothers plunge headlong into the seedy underbelly of contemporary America. Facing off against elements of the underworld, while pursued by police, they face the profound questions of what it means to be a father, a brother, and a man while trying to stay alive and one step head of unleashed forces far beyond their control or comprehension. As they descend deeper into their fate, they are confronted by the penultimate questions of what is worth living for and what is worth dying for. The film features Ishmael Butler (Butterfly of the Grammy award-winning group Digable Planets), Sir Mix-A-Lot, HBO's Def Jam Poet Laura Pierce Kelley, up-and-coming fashion designer Wai Ching Lueng and members of Maktub and UrbanScribe in a gritty urban tale of consequence.
