"Freeway" Rick Ross

Freeway: Crack in the System

The real story behind America's drug war, complete with drug dealers, dirty cops, and government complicity, this film was selected by the artist Frances Stark. At the center of it all is the rise, fall, and redemption of “Freeway” Rick Ross—a street hustler who became the king of crack. (2015, Dir. Marc Levin, 103 min.) 

After the screening, Daniel Voll, Consulting Producer will moderate a conversation and Q&A between “Freeway” Rick RossCoach Cornell Ward, former Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff Robert Juarez, and artist Frances Stark. A cash bar in the Hammer courtyard will follow the program.
