17 Blocks

17 Blocks follows three siblings in inner-city Washington. D.C. over the course of 15 years, focusing on the youngest child, Emmanuel Durant, Jr., from age 9 to his tragic death as a victim of gun violence at age 19. It’s a raw, intimate, and deeply personal documentary that illuminates an ongoing crisis in American cities through one family’s heartbreaking, courageous, and ultimately redemptive story.
