Protein TV Releases ‘Chi Raq’ Documentary

In an effort to document the extreme violence going on in Chicago’s streets, photographer/filmmaker Will Robson-Scott traveled to the the city to film “an intimate video portrait of life in South and West Chicago.” Presented by Protein TV, the 13-minute documentary delivers a grim portrayal of the free-for-all war zone that is Chicago and touches on the effects of music and violence on the youth. Chi Raq features appearances from upstart rapper King Louie and brand consultant Hustle Simmons.
