"No Loans Today" was filmed in the period following the 1992 riots in South Central Los Angeles. Centering on the ABC Loan Co., a twenty-five year old pawnshop/checkcashing outlet, the film follows the lives of several members of this community -- from business owners to gang members -- who've either chosen or been forced to remain there.
No Loans Today premiered in the 1995 Sundance Film Festival and was broadcast on PBS on the POV/The American Documentary series. It is distributed by First Run/Icarus Films.
