World Premiere of HOOD! It's a full length Indie film addressing the issues of the Chicago drug, gang, & gun violence flooding our streets. The film also brings to light the topics of food deserts, the hardships of no work, and some Chicago politics too! The writer Michael Lansu has taken a really interesting spin in this film to capture the audiences' attention, and keeps the action flowing throughout! The film stars Malik Yoba (from "Cool Runnings", "NY Undercover", Tyler Perry's "Why Did I get Married 1&2") Matt Singletary, Curley Boo Johnson (Harlem Globe Trotters, Founder of Boo Camp for kids), Chris Corres, Mahogany Monae, & Darren Jones.
