In one of the more fortuitous strokes of fate, "South Central," the latest film set in the largely black and Hispanic section of Los Angeles, has a title people almost anywhere in the world with access to CNN could relate to after the riots last spring. But Warner Bros., which acquired the film for theatrical distribution from the now-defunct RCA-Columbia home video unit, opened "South Central" where last Friday? Baltimore, Washington and Chicago.

Some students cheered, others hissed at times, but nearly all quietly reflected on the realities of their streets Thursday during a special screening of "South Central" at Los Angeles' Washington High School. Based on a novel about gang violence and hope by Donald Bakeer, who teaches English and drama at Washington, the film focuses on a young father trying to wrest his 10-year-old son from the cycle of gang violence. The father had been in prison nearly all of his son's life.

Carl Franklin's AFI thesis film, "Punk," achieves in 30 minutes what most good movies take nearly two hours to accomplish. It airs at 10:30 tonight on KCET-TV Channel 28 as part of PBS' adventuresome summer series "Alive TV." Amazingly, Franklin, in writing and shooting the story of a 9-year-old South-Central Los Angeles boy grappling with sexuality and manhood in the midst of squalor, makes you experience the odyssey of growing up as if for the first time.

Inspired by the radical notion that most of us don't live Jerry Springer lives, two Cal State Fullerton sociology professors, Myron Orleans and Scott Schaffer, have unleashed a new Web publication called the Journal of Mundane Behavior (http://www.mundanebehavior.org). Taking a fine-toothed comb to the quotidian, Mundane boldly takes on elevator talk, how we behave in libraries and what really happens during a morning shave. Its second issue appears next week.
