From the street to the boardroom, from the Hood to the Oval Office, its the same dynamic repeated in countless variations. The only difference is that while the street Pimps wear colorful clothes, and the streets Ho’s wear little at all, their corporate/government counterparts hide behind marketing slogans and slick double talk to effect the exact same thing…

The basic tenet of GhettoPhysics is that the interplay between the Pimp and the Ho is the simplest expression of the fundamental way that people interact in the world. But this interaction is so multilayered that it’s hard to see “the game”. However by looking at the world through the Pimp/Ho dynamic it becomes very easy to see the manipulations that keeps society’s Ho’s forever in debt, disempowered and marching off to war.

Part documentary, part “Saturday Night Live” satire, and part narrative story, GhettoPhysics begins by looking at the evocative world of the Pimp and Ho. It then moves out to encompass the entire social power game that is going down all around us, and finally brings it home in the way this awareness impacts one student’s life.

But between interviews, dramatic scenes and scathing satire, an interesting thread emerges – empowerment and hope. Pimps and Ho’s is not about right and wrong, good guys vs. bad guys. Its about awareness of “the game” and letting people know it’s up to them to choose the role they play in every situation. Like the film Network released decades ago, GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Ho’s Please Stand Up! refuses to let those in control rule our lives anymore. Network said: “We’re mad as hell and not going to take it anymore”. Our motto is simple and blunt: “Speak Truth to Power”.

Please Stand Up!
