Director statement

“The core style of Chi-Town is vérité, allowing the viewer to gain a strong connection and empathy for our characters. With our stripped-down visual approach, we present an intimacy and rawness that helps pull the viewer into Keifer’s world. Keifer is such a compelling character and his story has such a strong narrative arc to it, we want to give audiences a different experience from what they’re used to getting from sports documentaries. And by using Keifer’s highly entertaining journey as a vessel to shed light on these important issues, Chi-Town will impact audiences that are rarely drawn to social issue films”.
