*Angel is caught between life in the gang and his taboo friendship with Jamie.
Ticked is a narrative short film inspired by articles from the Los Angeles Times that deal with racially motivated killings on the streets of Los Angeles.
The idea was to make a film about street life in Los Angeles without glamorizing it and to work closely with a community that is suffering from violence to provide kids an opportunity to be inspired and gain hands-on experience in movie making.
The Hazard Park Project was born when Moritz Rechenberg met Monique Moncayo, a teen club supervisor and activist who introduced the idea to her class and after months of respect and trust-building, we made the short film called Ticked.
