"Chosen Foe Life" is a narrative film about young man’s path that is altered forever after he nearly loses his life to gun violence, directed by FSM alum Montel Williams. 

"National School Walkout & March For Our Lives" covers some of the Chicago school walkouts as well as the march in Washington, DC. It was produced by Free Spirit PRO.

 "North Lawndale College Prep DC Trip" follows a group of students from Chicago's West Side neighborhoods to the march in DC.

"Between the systemic injustice and idealistic interpretations everyone has of this city, lies a story about tremendous hope in the face of adversity and oppression. One day I realized that if I ever wanted to see that story then I would have to do it myself, which is why I wrote 'Drive Slow.'"
