Clever (2016)

Documentary Short | Watch Here 

This is a 5-minute scene from the documentary CLEVER. The film is a short documentary about the strange journey of Gerardo Lopez out of one of the most notorious street gangs, MS-13.  The film is a first-person account of not so much life in the gang, but an unflinching look into the criminal justice system and how it has long neglected the needs of communities of color.  CLEVER examines Gerardo’s youth from his own eyes, the criminal justice system that proliferated his gang involvement, as well as the United States’ political machine that gave rise to the gang.  The film’s backdrop is Gerardo’s current work with youth in the Denver area to help keep them out of gangs or to leave a destructive lifestyle of which they find themselves a part of. CLEVER screened at festivals around the world including at the New York Latino Film Festival, the Morelia Int. Film Festival in Mexico, and at the Cine Latino in Denver, Colorado.
