    • Synopsis
    • HOGTOWN is set in 1919 Chicago against the backdrop of the race riots of that year. The film follows an investigation into the disappearance of a millionaire theatre owner during a snowstorm. It is a murder mystery and a love story that celebrates the most American of American cities while exploring the intimate lives of many of its people. The period piece is in many ways a period-less piece, shot in black and white in the often undisguised contemporary city. The film involves a multi-racial, ensemble cast of more than 70 characters, a full symphony orchestra score, and evolves directly from the ensemble process of the making of the producers' previous feature, Chicago Heights, which was named to Roger Ebert's list of the Best Art Films of 2010.
