Five Star

Five Star

Primo is a member of Brooklyn’s Bloods gang. After John’s father is killed, Primo takes the boy under his wing. John is uncertain about committing to gang life, while Primo—with a wife and children—wants to leave the life altogether. Matters come to a boil, and both men find themselves with tough choices to make. Blurring reality and fiction, Five Star is an intense, authentic-feeling portrait of gang culture, one that raises profound questions about what it means to be a man.

This film is presented in association with the US Embassy.
