About Life of Crime: 1984-2020

LIFE OF CRIME: 1984-2020 is a longitudinal dive into the underbelly of Newark where crime can be a way of life and drugs are all too available in communities with few resources and little to no social welfare programs, and where prison time is offered up as a solution to addiction. In its graphic depictions of drug use, physical and emotional abuse and death, the film reflects a raw, visceral reality while also revealing the humanity of the complicated individuals at its center, fighting to survive in a broken, heartless system.
