Chi-Town - Rent
This film is available to rent for 48 hours.
Chi-Town follows Keifer Sykes on his meteoric rise from Marshall High School on Chicago’s West Side to his improbable shot at the NBA. This exhilarating multi-year journey of the explosive point guard’s ascent is punctuated by personal loss, debilitating injury, and tragic violence. At only 5’11 and surrounded by shattered dreams and wasted potential, the odds are stacked against Keifer at every turn. Keifer’s focus on his goal and his never-wavering support for his community are inspirations. This is an intimate, raw, surprising and unique behind the scenes look at a true champion - and what it really takes to make it. Set against the backdrop of the South and West side neighbourhoods where gun violence claims more American lives than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined, Chi-Town paints a portrait of a community finding alternatives to violence and coming together over the game that makes them strong.
