Award-winning Mani Amar presents a raw, unbiased look at a day in gang violence and foster care abuse in his latest film Footsteps Into Gangland. We suggest you simply view the trailer.
Footsteps Into Gangland is director Mani Amar’s film adaptation of true events that have shattered the South Asian community of Vancouver. Footsteps Into Gangland will give the audience and especially parents a true and unbiased look into a single day of the lives of these characters. Gritty, unhindered dialogue accompanied with Amar’s poetic filming style, the film will undoubtedly make you question, “where will your footsteps lead you?”
It’s important to give awareness to these issues which don’t just affect individuals, but entire communities through destructive ripples. However, individuals face enough as it is and that’s where change can be made to their bleak individual destinies.
Mani has faced death threats and a rising $65,000 debt through the production of this film. It’s more of a reason to check out the film to see what it is that’s so disturbing to others and invoking such relentless passion in director Mani.
The Vancity Buzz crew will definitely be there at one of the screenings.
