Boyz N The Hood

Dir. John Singleton
1991, 112min, DCP
With Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding Jr., Morris Chestnut

 

The granddaddy of 90s hood dramas charts the diverging fates of three friends—including rapper Ice Cube, making a big impression in his first film—coming of age in the urban warzone of South Central LA. John Singleton became the first black filmmaker ever nominated for a Best Director Oscar for his still-potent debut, a landmark look at the devastation of gang violence and the young men caught in its cycle.

 
Why Am I A Threat?

Dir. Jahmani Perry
1993, 4min

 

Ice Cube issues a stinging spoken word rebuke of white America and the hypocrisy of those who deem him a “threat.”
