Zach Wechter’s inner-city neo-noir short

Straight Down Low

{via Kim R.}

from The Atlantic

In this phenomenal short, a young detective must infiltrate rival gangs to investigate a puzzling murder. It’s called Straight Down Low and it’s directed by Zach Wechter, a filmmaker I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about in the future. Wechter clearly draws inspiration from Rian Johnson’s cult hit Brick, but his work is far from a rip-off; he’s steeped this hard-boiled story with narrative twists built on race relations, sexuality, and class tension.
