Production: What we know about The Scrapper?
- “I’ve always been fascinated by the darker side of human nature and drawn to the ﬁlms of Scorsese, De Palma, Tarantino, and Melville. The underdog, outcast and anti-hero are who captivate me. This is what inspired me to write The Scrapper, a crime thriller with an ethnic twist, set in a world of Punjabi-Mexican criminals. Inspired by my personal experience as an illegal Punjabi immigrant youth in Queens, New York”, says writer/director Bari Kang (11/22/2021).
