Gimme The Loot, written and directed by New York-based Adam Leon, was acquired for distribution by Sundance Selects about a year ago, after it won the Grand Jury Prize in the Narrative Feature section at last year's SXSW Film Festival.
Starring Tashiana Washington and Ty Hickson, the film's synopsis reads:
Malcolm and Sofia, two determined teens from the Bronx, are the ultimate graffiti-writers. When a rival gang buffs their latest masterpiece, they must hatch a plan to get revenge by tagging an iconic NYC landmark, but they need to raise $500 to pull off their spectacular scheme. Over the course of two whirlwind, sun-soaked summer days, Malcolm and Sofia travel on an epic urban adventure involving black market spray cans, illicit bodegas, stolen sneakers, a high wire heist, and a beautiful, rich girl’s necklace that is literally their key to becoming the biggest writers in the City.
After a year of international travel, via the film festival circuit, attracting acclaim along the way, Sundance Selects released the film in theaters, this spring.
It's now available on DVD and iTunes.
