All These Sons (2021)

Documentary 1h 28m 2021

Tue 12 Oct 12:30-13:58

This is an unflinching portrait of two Chicago organisations, The Inner City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) and MAAFA, which recruit young Black men to get them off the streets and tackle gun violence. Many of the participants have been shot, incarcerated and lost loved ones. These organisations have given them a second chance, as well as housing, education and work. The film follows three participants, Shamont, Zay and Charles, through their highs and lows as they take part in these programmes. In a similar fashion to their 2018 debut Minding the Gap, Liu and Altman avoid saccharine, emotionally manipulative filmmaking, instead offering an alternative portrait of the lives of young men, and celebrating the power and effectiveness of community action.
