Post film Q&A with the Colorado-based team: Director Alan Dominguez, Subject Gerardo Lopez and Director of Photography Aaron Kopp.

This short documentary details the life and work of Gerardo Lopez (a.k.a. Clever), a Denver-based gang interventionist. Formerly of the notorious MS13 from Los Angeles, Clever details his way out of gang life, his work in keeping youth from making the same mistakes, and his extraordinary tale of survival once he made the courageous decision to move his young family away from the negative influences of his youth.
