In examining a bank robbery committed by Texas high-school students, Darius Clark Monroe’s film interweaves suspenseful reenactment footage with candid interviews from people involved in every angle of the crime. We hear from participants, victims, family members, and law-enforcement officials, all very open in discussing how the crime impacted them at the time, and how they relate to it now. The twist? The filmmaker himself was one of the men involved in the robbery. Executive-Produced by Spike Lee and a hit at its SXSW 2014 World Premiere, the AFS Grant-supported EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL is a unique project delivered with great skill, confidence, and insight.
