BANG BANG Portland Premiere

Justin is a troubled teen looking for a way out of the gang life. His best friend Charlie is a rich kid who lives in the nice part of town. Justin runs away from home after a fight with his mom and takes refuge at Charlies house while charlie's parents are away on a prolonged business trip. The murder of a fellow gang member avalanches into a full blown war with a rival gang. Caught in the midst of teenage angst, gang violence, and alienation, the two friends find themselves heading down two different paths of life.

BANG BANG won the grand jury award for best 1st feature at the 2011 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. The movie stars Portland's own Thai Ngo, a rising hip hop artist signed with 454 Life Entertainment. Filmmakers and cast in attendance.
