Trailer for the Film on YouTube:
Writer/Director John Singleton once said in an interview with Ebony magazine: “There are always stories about how Whites grow up…I always wanted to do a real film about what it’s like growing up Black.” The result: his debut, award-winning feature film BOYZ IN THE HOOD which vibrantly and violently portrays the challenging life of childhood friends growing up in the South Central Los Angeles ghetto. Ironically, while making this distinctive African American film, Singleton was inspired by - and visually references – scenes from George Lucas’ first box office smash: the 1950s white teenager dramedy, AMERICAN GRAFFITI.
