black youth gun violence*A new film showing Harlem youth toting guns and engaging in wild shootouts is garnering criticism, according to the NY Daily News.

There’s shootouts, sex, and drug use in this film which the director says takes you into the lives of young Harlem children.

“That’s what’s going on, I’m just showing it,” director Tremaine Brown told the Daily News. “You hear about these murders, but people don’t see how it happens. I show how these incidents happen. These are real life situations.”
