Flatlands - For Dante, a young man from the Flatlands of East Oakland, California, staying safe is a constant preoccupation.  This intimate and compelling story reveals the pervasive and traumatic impact of gun violence on Dante’s life and his daily struggle to survive in a community that is over-policed yet under-protected. Facing crippling challenges and heartache, Dante strives do the right thing – but death, in the Flatlands neighborhoods, is always just around the corner.
