Watch: Powerful Crime Drama Short 'Los Angeles 1991' by Zac&Mac
"On the day they were going to kill him, Jun Seo did not arrive at his liquor store until 5PM." It's always hard to introduce short films without giving away too much about them. I prefer to say the least possible before simply encouraging watching the short in full. This one is titled Los Angeles 1991 and is set in Los Angeles in 1991 and is a real-life story about a shooting at a local liquor store. It's a very powerful drama that makes you think about how different lives intersect and interact in a tragedy like this. The short is made by "Zac&Mac", directed by a filmmaker known as "Macgregor", also known in real life as Miguel de Olaso. He's definitely proving that he can handle real-life drama and emotions with this short. Watch below in full.

Wow, this should be shared zillions of times, and as we all watch the GOP and Democratic candidates rejoice over their victories in New Hampshire, we remember that very little of the high-minded rhetoric, or low-minded in the case of some, will have a wit of impact on these kinds of tragedies occurring every single day in this country.

Great storytelling. I love the fact that every character is a racist making bad decisions, but every character is still sympathetic and has a story.
