Film Series: Dope

2015. USA. Dir: Rick Famuyiwa. With Shameik Moore, A$AP Rocky. 115 min.

 

After three geeky high schoolers from Inglewood get caught in the crossfire of a busted-up drug deal, they find themselves with a backpack full of dope and no way to get rid of it – except to sell. Famuyiwa asserts his directorial voice in full neon in this delightfully stylized coming-of-age story. The film will be followed by a post-screening discussion facilitated by The Ankh.
