July 28, 2013 at 5:00pm: G-Dog Featuring _See Me

*_G-Dog is what the homies call the priest. The film of the same name introduces us to Father Greg Boyle, a white Jesuit priest who’s spent some 25 years in the toughest part of East L.A., and the tough, street-smart, and amazingly sweet young people — all former gang members — whom G-Dog loves and helps. Father Greg uses a radical but simple remedy for what he calls “a global sense of failure” for kids: boundless, restorative love. He works by a powerful idea: Nothing Stops a Bullet like a Job. Over the years his unstoppable compassion has turned around the lives of thousands of Latino, Asian and African-American gang members creating Homeboy Industries, an international model for rebuilding and redirecting the lives of gang members. The film is often hilarious and astonishing, but it is not just a poem of sweetness and light. G-Dog chronicles a tough year in the life of Homeboy Industries facing tumult, change, and pain. Q&A follows the film with director Freida Lee Mock.
