My Brother’s Keeper
Rodney Lucas, Director, Los Angeles
Titus Batts and DeSonni Hardge are the young co-captains of South Shore Drill Team, a non-profit organization based in Chicago that uses performance art to empower disenfranchised youth. In a city with a narrative of violence and crime, these two boys are showing their communities that the routines that bond them in drill are stronger than the social pressures that would divide them on the streets.
With an extensive background in the music industry, director Rodney Lucas attributes the poetic tonality, and rhythmic flow of his films to the time he spent touring the world as a performance artist.
My bother’s keeper premiered at Nowness in November 2019.
