Gangsta Paradise? Street Culture in New Zealand

A Journeyman Pictures documentary perspective on street gang culture in New Zealand. The biker gangs of the 1970s & 80s (eg Mongrel Mob) have been superceded by street gangs of South Auckland modeled on those of Los Angeles. Sadly, many of these young people haven't listened closely enough to Coolio's lyrics.
