CENT-05. Summertime

USA, Feature Film, 2021, 90 min

From the 2021 Sundance Film Festival

Just might be the most inspirational movie to hit the indie circuit this year. Variety

The spoken word for this joyously infectious urban musical was written by 27 hugely talented high school students in LA. The film was born of the director's self-described “mind-blowing” visit to a workshop where performers from across the city recited fearlessly personal texts. They include a skating guitarist, a tagger, two wannabe rappers, an exasperated fast-food worker and a limo driver, all who weave in and out of scenes, and through poetry express life, love, heartache, family, home and fear. One of them just wants to find a place that still sells good, cheap cheeseburgers.

Directed by Carlos López Estrada
