"Sidewayz," written by Poots4Prez, is a short film about how in life unexpected events occur at unwanted times and sometimes they're unavoidable but one must stay Focused.
The film was produced as a positive outlet for the youth to use their creativity and energy to keep them out the streets and negativity surrounding the city as they utilize knowledge obtained from the film that will help them endure life's good or bad experience, cultivating them to make better decisions. It is a story of sheer human grit that should be seen by others no matter the diversity as an example and inspiration according to what we go through in today's society.
