Crips and Bloods: Made in America

Crips and Bloods: Made in America is a concise documentary that explores the origins of the gangs in South Central Los Angeles, providing a social history of the violence that has so seriously impacted these communities.

The film includes interviews with former gang members, as well as a lot of footage of South Central during the 60s and 70s, such as the Watts riot. It brings attention to the consequences of social inequality and the larger society's abandonment of minority communities. It makes a clear argument about race and explores the changes in African American communities after the Civil Rights era.
