INDEPENDENT LENS
Evolution of a Criminal

 

Years ago, 16-year-old honor student Darius Clark Monroe was arrested for robbing a Bank of America. Seventeen years after serving his sentence, Monroe returns to his childhood home and encounters the people affected by the robbery: his family, victims at the bank and his partners in crime. In this emotionally compelling documentary, Darius, now 33, turns the camera on a past he deeply regrets and tries to make the audience understand how he came to make the decision he made without providing excuses for his actions.
