Venice native and skateboard legend Stacy Peralta is well known for documentaries examining topics that are close to his heart, like the rise of skateboarding and big wave surfing, but next on his docket is a topic that most Angelenos will be less thrilled about: gangs. FUEL.TV has posted an interesting interview with Peralta about his latest film, Crips and Bloods: Made in America, which on schedule to play at Laemmle’s Sunset 5 February 6th-12th. The film looks to be a little more insightful than your typical episode of Gangland. Peralta also talks a bit about the realities of documentary filmmaking and his disappointment over that atrocious Burger King advertisement that’s been making the rounds.
