Summertime

Over the course of a hot summer day in Los Angeles, the lives of 25 young Angelenos intersect in this Sundance standout from exciting young filmmaker Carlos Lopez Estrada, director of Blindspotting and this year's animated Disney smash Raya and the Last Dragon. A skating guitarist, a tagger, two wannabe rappers, an exasperated fast-food worker, a limo driver--they all weave in and out of each other’s stories. Through poetry they express life, love, heartache, family, home, and fear. One of them just wants to find someplace that still serves good cheeseburgers.
