Step into the lives of an LGBT street gang in the movie ‘Check It’.
Introduced to the world at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival, the movie was spotted by the polarising Louis C.K. who took it under his wing by breathing new life into it and bagging himself an executive-producer credit in the process.
Dana Flor, Toby Oppenheimer and Steve Buscemi stand as its original creatives and now join C.K. to unlock its story via a new trailer.
C.K. had this to say about it:
It knocked me right over. It was an amazing emotional ride. It was funny and moving, I learned a lot and it gave me a lot to think about after. They started this gang to protect each other. They made a family where they didn’t have one. It’s not an easy film. It takes on life right where the rubber hits the road. What made me love it was just the kids themselves. They are like any kids, like anyone’s children. They are trying to cope against terrible odds, they are funny and full of hope and life. Their lives are difficult and complex. They are very generous in sharing this with the filmmakers and you, if you watch the film.
