Chi Raq

Chi Raq is an intimate video portrait of life in South and West Chicago. For the past decade, Chicago has been enduring a violence epidemic, with a death toll in the thousands and casualties mirroring the losses experienced by the US army in Iraq war over the same period. Allowing its subjects to take centre stage and tell their stories in their own words, Will Robson-Scott's film is unflinchingly honest in its depiction of life on the streets of one of the most dangerous cities in America.
