Hanging

Directors Elizabeth Spear and James Teems take the verite approach for this video about a black teen who's removed from the custody of his drug-addicted mother and placed in a youth shelter. He befriends other kids, listens to advice from a counselor, and shoots baskets, all the while trying desperately to get in touch with his mom in rehab. The directors often mistake hysterical outbursts for drama and unrelenting street lingo for the way kids really talk; the only authentic moments come from Stephan Adamson as the morose teen. 73 min.
