[Watch] Before ‘Fruitvale’ Ryan Coogler Directed Award Winning Short, ‘Locks’

Director and screenwriter Ryan Coogler took the top two prizes for dramatic films at Sundance last year for his critically acclaimed film ‘Fruitvale’. I love the way this guy can tell a story.  While at USC, Coogler made several short films, including “Locks,” the story about a young man in Oakland who wakes up with a heavy heart and decides to take a walk to the local barbershop. Watch it below:

38th Notes writes, “what originally looks to be a West Oakland slice-of-life short, turns out to be unexpectedly touching” Locks is a short film by Oakland and Richmond native Ryan Coogler, the former Sacramento State football player and graduate of USC film school. The film was selected as a finalist for the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival.
