“Chicago at the Crossroad” is 1 out of only 5 documentaries selected to screen at the prestigious American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in Miami on June 15th. “It’s good for this film to have that premiere at ABFF because ABFF represents a lot of the topics that are in the film,” says Emmy winning producer & director Brian Schodorf.
Schodorf developed an interest in learning about the public housing crisis 15 years ago and throughout the years exclusive footage and interviews were gathered.
This documentary provides a case study and takes viewers on a historical journey that shows what led to our current issue with crime and violence.
Community activist Afrika Porter is an executive producer of the film. She was able to contribute a lot of her knowledge that was learned from her late father, community activist Rev. Kwame John R. Porter, Ph.D.
Grammy Award Winning Spoken Word Artist Malik Yusef is the narrator and executive producer.
“Chicago at the Crossroad” is competing for the ABFF Best Documentary prize.
