In 1999, nine-year-old Emmanuel Sanford-Durant and his family began filming their daily lives in

America’s most dangerous neighborhood — just 17 blocks behind the U.S. Capitol. They've

been filming ever since. Made in a unique collaboration with filmmaker and journalist Davy

Rothbart, and spanning two decades, 17 BLOCKS illuminates a nation's ongoing crisis through

one family's raw, stirring, and deeply personal saga.
