More than twice as many people have been murdered in Chicago than in the Afghanistan war zone since 2001 – that’s a seriously fucked up statistic, and our friend Will Robson-Scott decided to investigate what the climate is actually like in Chitown.
Shot exclusively for Protein, Chi Raq is a powerful look at a city in conflict – travelling through South and West Chicago he meets the city’s residents, from the youth to the families who’ve lost sons to the violence on the streets. It’s a compelling insight into a city in a state of turmoil in the heart of a first world nation.
Will Robson-Scott has also released a limited run publication to accompany the film featuring photography from Chicago. Limited to 200 copies, this one is going to disappear quick. You can grab a copy here.
