G-Dog

Father Gregory Boyle, a Jesuit priest better known as G-Dog, founded Homeboy Industries in 1992 as a job training program for former Los Angeles gang members. It’s since become the largest, most successful gang intervention and rehab program in the US, with businesses including Homegirl Cafe, a bakery and silk-screened hoodies. When hard economic times threaten all this, G-Dog and his community of former gangbangers fight to keep their programs going. One of the most inspirational and uplifting documentaries of the year, Father Boyle and the group at Homeboy show us we can make a better world.
