SPECIAL SCREENING

TRUE SON

Directed by Kevin Gordon
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 72 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE TRUE SON
Stockton, California, is considered one of the worst cities in the United States, riddled with financial crisis and crime rates rivaling Afghanistan. Where everyone else saw hopelessness, 22-year-old Michael Tubbs saw possibility. In 2012, Tubbs ran for City Council, building his campaign from the ground up. In Kevin Gordon’s passionate and inspirational documentary he sets out to beat a politician twice his age and bring his community back from bankruptcy.
