Director Darius Monroe and executive produced by Spike Lee share a story of financial inequality, misjudgment and atonement in "Evolution of a Criminal" premiering at SXSW.

In his documentary feature, Monroe reveals the circumstances and decisions that transform a Texas honor student into a bank robber.

Here's the synopsis:

Years ago, a 16 year old honor student was arrested for robbing a Bank of America. Darius Clark Monroe was that young man. Years after serving his sentence, Monroe returns to his childhood home and encounters the people affected by the robbery: his family, victims in the bank, and his partners in crime.

Monroe is a Houston, Texas native and recipient of a National Board of Review Award, Austin Film Society Grant, Rooftop Filmmakers’/DCTV Grant, Warner Bros. Film Award, Cinereach Grant, King Finishing Award, and a NYU Spike Lee Production Fellowship. He was also a Screenwriters Colony, Tribeca All Access, IDFA Forum, and IFP Documentary Lab fellow.
