GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up! examines the interplay between Pimps and Ho’s and how that dynamic is the simplest expression of how power is wielded in the world. The film utilizes documentary footage, animation, satire and dramatization to illustrate examples culled from the Hood to Wall Street - be the players real-life pimps or corporate executives repeating the same power dynamics. The film includes interviews with notable entertainers and thinkers, such as Dr. Cornel West, Ice-T, KRS-One, Too Short, John Perkins, Cynthia McKinney, William H. Arntz (co-director) and Norman Lear. Of course, it also includes a colorful contingent of street characters, with names such as Filmore Slim, Hook da Crook, Mac Breed and Lo Da Show.
