A year after the Rodney King verdict and the LA riots in 1993, the Lollapalooza Music Festival commissioned me to direct, produce & collaborate on this short film with Ice Cube.

Executive producers: Jesse Dylan (Bob Dylan's son) and Angus Wall (two-time Academy Award-winning Editor for THE SOCIAL NETWORK and THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.
