WE GROWN NOW at Siskel Film Center

April 19 - April 25

In 1992 Chicago, as Michael Jordan solidifies himself as a champion, wide-eyed and imaginative best friends Malik and Eric traverse the city, looking to escape the mundaneness of school and the hardships of growing up in the Cabrini-Green housing projects. Their unbreakable bond is challenged when tragedy shakes their community. Directed by Chicago filmmaker Minhal Baig, the Chicago Tribune’s 2023 Film Person of the year, and hailed by critic Robert Daniels as “an unassuming character study set to poetic rhythms [that] makes for an empathetic study of Black life, full of resolve,” WE GROWN NOW is a delicate portrait of coming-of-age.
