Five Star

A member of the notorious Bloods since he was 12 years old, Primo takes John, the son of a fallen gang member, under his wing, versing him in the code of the streets. Set amongst the streets of East New York, Five Star blends documentary and fiction as director Keith Miller (Welcome to Pine Hill) carefully eschews worn cliches of gang culture to offer a compelling portrait of two men as they are both forced to confront the question of what it really means to be a man.
