It’s no secret that Chicago is a violent city. Sadly, it has become part of the city’s history, and it just keeps getting worse. Gun violence and gangs have become an epidemic in Chicago, and the murder rates continue to soar everyday. Due to the murder rate, the city is now being referred to by a new name, Chiraq, because of those who feel the city resembles the war-stricken country of Iraq. British filmmaker Will Robson-Scott has gone to the West & South Side of Chicago to document the lives of those who are affected by the violence on the streets.
The film is set to release on August 13th of this year.
