“Chi Raq” Documentary Film By Photographer Will Robson-Scott

Chi Raq - Documentary film by Will Robson-Scott

My friend photographer Will Robson-Scott told me a little bit about his documentary “Chi Raq” when I was with him in Australia earlier this year. It feels like it’s been a long time since then, so I was excited yesterday when he told me it was finally online!

This is an intimate portrait of life in South and West Chicago. I had no idea it was one of the most dangerous cities in America.

Watch the entire “Chi Raq” film below!


 

Director: Will Robson-Scott / willrobsonscott.co.uk

Editor: Luca Campanale / lucacampanale.com

Will put together a zine to accompany the film, here.

This film is presented by Protein with support by Plus.
