AWARD SCREENING: BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY, US NARRATIVE COMPETITION: KICKS
The award for Best Cinematography, US Narrative Competition goes to Kicks, with cinematography by Michael Ragen.
When his hard-earned kicks get snatched by a local hood, fifteen-year old Brandon and his two best friends go on an ill-advised mission across the Bay Area to retrieve the stolen sneakers. Featuring a soundtrack packed with hip-hop classics, Justin Tipping's debut feature is an urban coming-of-age tale told with grit, humor, and surprising lyricism.
