25 years after the historical L.A. riots, the movie Gook is set to soon be released as it reflects on a pivotal time where racial disparities were at an all time high, particularly within the black, asian & white community.
The 2017 Sundance winner describes the movie as follow:
“Eli (Chon) and Daniel (So) are two Korean American brothers that run their late father’s shoe store in a predominantly African American community of Los Angeles. These two brothers strike up a unique and unlikely friendship with an 11-year-old African American girl, Kamilla (Baker). As Daniel dreams of becoming a recording artist and Eli struggles to keep the store afloat, racial tensions build to a breaking point in L.A. as the “infamous” L.A. Riots break out.”
