|About “The Greens”
The Greens is a 20-minute personal journey documentary about what happens when a white college kid sits down in a black barber’s chair. They journey through time, back into the contentious memory of one of Chicago’s “most notorious” housing projects, Cabrini-Green, where they confront their deepest assumptions about the neighborhood, its residents, violence and the possibility of finding common ground.
"You can't take a gun, put it to my head and say, 'this is a stick up, give me your memories' ...you can't take that from us."
