The urban narrative Asbury Park will have an early screening pay-per-view event, February 28th, on Vimeo on Demand. Written and directed by Ken “Legend” Williams, this film is a window that will reveal to outsiders the plight and vulnerability of the inner city while exposing a world that’s not typically shown on film or highlighted in music videos.
Asbury Park reveals the tale of injustice through the eyes of inner-city youths. This story is about four boys who dream of making it out of the hood, but to do so, they’ll have to choose between being law-abiding citizens and doing what’s right or not.
Everyone is quick to say what they would never do, but if forced to choose between doing something illegal and having a loved one die would you be willing to cross that line? Revealing the pain, fears, and obstacles that many in those communities encounter regularly, these circumstances leave them with one goal…to survive.
