Gimme the Loot
Director in person for Q&A at both screenings!
Malcolm and Sofia, two determined teens from the Bronx, are the ultimate graffiti-writers. When a rival gang buffs their latest masterpiece, they hatch a plan to get revenge by tagging an iconic NYC landmark, but they need to raise $500 to pull off their spectacular scheme. Over the course of two sun-soaked summer days, the pair travel on an epic urban adventure involving black market spraycans, illicit bodegas, stolen sneakers, a high-wire heist, and a beautiful girl’s necklace that is literally their key to becoming the biggest writers in the city. In his feature film debut, Adam Leon creates a raucous, car-less road trip that is also a hip homage to street-smart kids and the city we love. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at SXSW 2012!
