This clip consists of a roughly edited scene with Amir Ali Hakim who was released from prison in 2011 and at the time of this recording, was living with his cousin and her teenage son Darian in South Central Los Angeles. Now that my project, tentatively titled “Re-Made Men” (previously “Islam on the Inside”) is focused entirely on Project Restore in Chicago, this clip will not be included in my final film. However, I find this scene to represent a re-occuring theme in many of the previously incarcerated men that I have documented in the past 3 years which is a fervent desire to divert those around them from negative life decisions and reckless behavior.
