While we can't currently gather in person, you can see new documentary films (or our classics!) – films you can't see elsewhere – from home via our Virtual Cinema and support DCTV.

Assembled by DCTV co-founder, award-winning documentarian Jon Alpert, Latin Kings: A Street Gang Story follows the notorious New York gang's ex-leader, Antonio "King Tone" Fernandez. Under house arrest at the time of filming, Fernandez insists that he has experienced an epiphany, and that upon his release he intends to transform his gang into a peace-loving, community activist group. His words are contrasted with the violent activities of the Latin Kings during the final years of the 20th century, as captured on police surveillance tapes.
