Ever since I heard about Stacy Perralta’s (Dogtown and Z-Boys) latest documentary Crips and Bloods: Made in America several months ago I have been waiting for the film to make it to the Midwest. CBMA looks at the roots of Los Angeles’ two most notorious gangs through interviews with current and former members and traces it’s not so violent origins.

View the trailer here.
