CHECK IT is a feature–length documentary about a gay African American gang struggling to survive in one of Washington D.C.’s most violent neighborhoods. It is an intimate portrait of 5 childhood friends as they claw themselves out of gang life through an unlikely avenue–fashion.
We’ve spent the past 3 years capturing The Check It's story, but we cannot deliver the final film without your help. Your contributions will allow us to make sure it can get out into the world and touch as many lives as possible.
While a portion of the funds we raise will go towards completing the film–which is currently in the late stages of editing–another portion–10%–will go directly to the kids themselves–helping to buy sewing machines and fabric for their up and coming fashion line.
With the help of the Indiegogo community, we can tell The Check It's story in full and–most importantly in the process–we can take direct steps to insure that the baton of opportunity is handed directly to the leaders of the gang–providing them with concrete means of entrepreneurial ownership in a young company that they will be building from the ground up.
