'98 | Slam

With Nonchalant being from D.C., it felt natural to continue that theme. Slam is the docudrama of the U.S.'s war against drugs and its continuously growing number of victims - black men. Set in D.C. Saul Williams plays a young, intelligently gifted poet surviving the streets. After a friend is severely shot during a drug deal gone wrong, Williams is caught up, left to put thing sin perspective. A tale in manhood and truth, the film depicts an all-too familiar story of our black men in the inner cities.
