Lions in the Corner

Production /

Virginia, Scarface started Streetbeefs in his backyard to combat gun and knife violence in the area. Soon it turned into something much more.

Director’s Statement

I was absolutely thrilled when I learned that my own hometown was housing a fight club to combat gun and knife violence in the area. It was a unique, progressive and overall effective approach to an issue many towns of that size struggle dealing with. Scarface has been running streetbeefs in his backyard for nearly a decade now and it’s grown to truly unexpected proportions, both in size and effect. Scarface is making the streets my own family lives on safer and changing lives in a multitude of ways. Proud of the talented people that gave their time and effort to help me tell this personal story as well as my the people that make up my hometown.
