Dirty Hands: Movie Preview

Dirty Hands: The Art and Crimes of David Choe is the latest film from Upper Playground showcasing the life of the artist as never before seen. Screenings begin in Los Angeles from April 30- May 6 and in San Francisco from May 21-27. The movie showcases the artists’ strong urge for vandalism and crime until he is summoned to prison. During his stay behind bars, he discovers religious education but fails to put it into practice once he is released to the streets. I guess we’ll have to watch the movie to see how he turns out. For further information, check out Sunset 5. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer.
