"Straight Hustle"

Here's a short film made by Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie in 2011. It was commissioned and produced by the NorthWest Film Forum as part of their One Shot Program. 

The Safdie brothers were born and raised in New York City, in both Queens & Manhattan. After their dad bought a Hi-8 camcorder, they ate, slept, and did "life" on camera. Josh, Benny and friends started the film collective Red Bucket Films in 2001. 
These two got a cold hustle going on in downtown Seattle.
Life on the street. Watch and learn.

"You got hustled, my man!" The film had that kind of energy, trying to be realistic but really being a lie.
