Sweetness of Wild is a coming of age, poetic film series, based in Black Minneapolis. This series with humor and complexity situates itself in the renaissance of Black Minneapolis that is sweetly and radically being defined by Black Lives Matter activism, unrepentant feminism, hood life, queerness, poverty transcendence, experimental Black music, compelling visual and performance art and urban bike culture. Please support this project by making a contribution to our Indiegogo campaign!
