Put You On: Throw

Throw - Coffin Nachtmahr

Growing up in the violence ridden and gang infested slums of East Baltimore is hard enough. Imagine having to grow up in that environment with a speech impediment. Add to that a relentless determination to not conform. That was the unhappy life of Coffin Nachtmahr until he found purpose, acceptance and community in the “throwers” subculture. The short film explores the story of how one young man found salvation in a yo-yo. The film has numerous awards and is an absolute must-see. Enjoy!
