Protein is very proud to present Chi Raq, a film by London-born photographer/filmmaker Will Robson- Scott.
The first in a series of exclusive commissions for Protein TV, Chi Raq is an intimate video portrait of life in South and West Chicago.
For the past decade, Chicago has been enduring a violence epidemic, with a death toll in the thousands and casualties mirroring the losses experienced by the US army in Iraq war over the same period. Allowing its subjects to take centre stage and tell their stories in their own words, Robson-Scott?s film is unflinchingly honest in its depiction of life on the streets of one of the most dangerous cities in America.
