A Good Day To Me

A doc short commissioned as part of splitpillow’s decade-long “Chicago 360” project, which hopes to chronicle early 21st century life and culture in the windy city.

This Zortz! joint focuses on Charlie Lawrence Jr. and his trade: selling peanuts on the intersection of Harrison and Sacramento, off the highway in the south side of the city.

Listen to the peanut man, kids. You just might learn something.
