COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Former gang member turned filmmaker Terrence Davis will premiere his newest film July 1 at the Manhattan Film Festival.

"Colors: Bangin' in South Carolina" details the deadliest gang feud in the history of Columbia which was inherited from Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles and has lasted over 15 years.

The film follows Davis, who was formerly the leader of one the largest Crip gangs in South Carolina history by the time he was 17 years old.

After losing friends and his mother, Davis said it was time for a change, so he decided to go to college and get an education. After graduating from the University in South Carolina, he was accepted to film school in New York City and has been working on movies ever since.

The film offers never before seen footage of gangs, active gang member testimonials, and interviews with the newly formed police agencies that were made to stop them.
