hard world for small things
Produced by acclaimed filmmaker Janicza Bravo, Hard World for Small Things aims to humanize victims of police violence whose lives media outlets often reduce to a few paragraphs and bullet wounds. Bravo’s film counters this by placing the viewer in the passenger seat of a convertible in L.A. with a group of friends before a violent police encounter. During the ride, viewers will get to know the hopes, dreams and favourite entertainment of members of a community - adding to the sense of injustice one feels as violent events unfold. An innovative and affecting piece of contemporary storytelling, Hard World for Small Things adds a crucial human dimension to one of the most misunderstood issues in America today.
