In urban America, there are community promises made, triumphant political speeches performed and conditions, which rarely change. Yet when the gunshots sound and blood spills, who shows up?
From the midnight surgeons, to a community on the brink of hope and sacrifice, THE SWEETEST LAND investigates real stories of violence, prevention and change, where complacency can no longer be an option.
THE SWEETEST LAND has been awarded “Best Documentary” from the Fort Worth Indie Film Showcase, Docs Without Borders Film Festival, the Queens World Film Festival and the Los Angeles Film Awards. It has been featured in over 17 national film festivals including the Lower East Side Film Festival in NYC, New Haven Docs at Yale University and many others nationwide.
