December’s Doc Soup!

D: Darius Clark Monroe | USA | 2014 | 81 min | Toronto Premiere

EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL is an honest and raw self-portrait dissecting the various factors that drove the filmmaker from a lighthearted childhood to robbing a bank at the age of 16. Interweaving suspenseful re-enactment footage with candid interviews from people involved in every angle of the crime, including the participants, victims, family members, and law-enforcement officials, emotional discussions reveal how the crime impacted them at the time and how they relate to it now. Presenting himself as a cautionary tale, Monroe’s gripping film is an important conversation starter about race, class, education, and the prison system.

Director Darius Clark Monroe will introduce the film and answer questions following select screenings.
