Via Variety: Louis C.K. has released a documentary entitled Check It through his website. The documentary is based on members of a black LGBT gang in Washington, D.C. as they attempt to survive. After years of harassment and ridicule, the gang realized they had two options, “Either run or fucken Fight” & “[They] chose to fight.”
Check It is directed by Toby Oppenheimer and Dana Flor, who followed the gang members for four years as they dealt with harassment, poverty, and violence. The comedian saw the film at the Tribeca Film Festival in April at the behest of Buscemi.
C.K. announced the release through an email to his subscribers. “It knocked me right over,” he said. “It was an amazing emotional ride. It was funny and moving, I learned a lot and it gave me a lot to think about after.”
The film can be “purchased for $5 like everything else on [his] site.”
