We’re proud to welcome FilmIndie Cinema Club for a pop-up screening of Kicks, one of the hidden gems of 2016 and the directorial debut for Justin Tipping. The film sparks a conversation around male masculinity and violence, sneaker culture, and the coming-of-age experience of urban teens. It also beautifully showcases something we don’t often see in film: black male friendship.
Synopsis: An East Bay teen longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy, in hopes of escaping the reality of being poor, picked on and ignored by girls. His prized kicks get snatched soon after he gets them and he embarks on a dangerous quest to get them back.
