The film's director Julio Fernandez will be in attendance and Jukebox Cinema curator Matt Conboy will conduct a Q&A after the film.

Film Synopsis:
In 2006, with 22 years of age and sentenced to 27 years in prison for the crime of qualified homicide, Rocky entered the East Men's Preventive Prison in Mexico City. A few months later, resenting the burden and the deep frustration caused by the condition of confinement, began the project MPC CREW (Ministers of Street Poetry) with the idea of forming a group in which rap was a different way of sharing experiences that are heard within a criminal. A year later they joined the Bullet and Hones project, and since then they worked together to make this a real literary workshop in which crime, poverty, death, drugs and violence were denounced in a different way for their protagonists.
