Film Screening: Los Sures

Film Screening: Los Sures (1)
When: Friday, Nov 17, 2017 - 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Directed by Diego Echeverria (United States, 1984, 57 minutes, color)
In the late 1970s and early 1980s Los Sures was one of the poorest neighborhoods in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This documentary presents the challenges of the area—drugs, crime, gang violence, abandoned buildings, and racial tensions—while also celebrating the vitality of this largely Puerto Rican and Dominican community. Manohla Dargis in The New York Timescalled the film “a must see for those interested in both the history of Lost New York and the power of nonfiction cinema.”
Shown in conjunction with the annual Researching New York Conference
