EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL

Directed by Darius Clark Monroe / 83 min.

Director Darius Clark Moore is scheduled to attend and participate in a Q&A after the screening. 

How does a 16 year-old evolve into a bank robber? In EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL, filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe asks this very question — about himself. After seeing his mother and stepfather struggle to make ends meet while living outside of Houston, Texas, Monroe decided to help them by robbing a bank with two friends. In the film, Monroe interviews his family members, close friends and mentors who recount the stages of his transformation, going from a joyous childhood to the moment he realized the severity of his family’s financial problems, and how their struggles changed his outlook on society and his life as a whole. Returning to his neighborhood several years after the crime, Monroe creates an incredibly intimate and personal journey of reflection and forgiveness while beautifully examining lower class struggles, the desperation of a teen under pressure, and the emotional impact that rippled in the aftermath of that day.

Preceded by dawn. (dir. Ya'Ke Smith / 20 min.) - After several prison stints, Dawn is determined to right her wrongs, but the years locked away may have damaged her.
