The streets is a short stop. Either you slanging crack rock, or you got a wicked jump-shot.


— Biggie Smalls

35 mins   |   English   |  Documentary

Director: Paul Lewis

Subterracon Films, in partnership with the Abstract Athlete, has produced a new short documentary featuring the Richmond, Virginia-based artist, Jaraz Jenkins, who survived a life on the street and jail-time to build a new, creative and positive life.


The producers hope to inspire and educate a local to global community with Jaraz's unique voice and incredible journey.

Thank you to our contributors to this film, who have made it all possible!
