Directed by Alan Dominguez
With gang violence a popular topic amongst media pundits and politicians, this short documentary proves a powerful counterpoint- exposing the life and work of Gerardo Lopez (a.k.a. Clever), a Denver-based gang interventionist. Formerly of the notorious MS13 from Los Angeles, Clever details his escape from gang life, his work keeping at-risk youth from making the same mistakes, and his extraordinary tale of survival once he made the decision to extricate himself and his family from the negative influences of his past.
Producer: Alan Dominguez, Daniel Junge
