Executive Producer Nas presents this vivid inner-city saga set amid Cleveland’s skateboarding culture. During the day, Cisco and his group of friends videotape their daring skate stunts in the hopes of one day going pro. At night, they use them to pull off kinetic carjackings. But when they get mixed up in a drug deal and cross a ruthless queen-pin, they put their friendship—and lives—on the line. The film features an impressive cast that includes Michael K. Williams (Omar of The Wire), Erykah Badu, and Machine Gun Kelly. Set to a solid hip-hop soundtrack, The Land’s engaging narrative and powerful performances match the music that sustains its energy and poetry.
