Ah, New York. Since the advent of filmmaking, many have sought to replicate our city’s uniquely gritty atmosphere on screen. The filmmakers in this program continue that cinematic endeavor, scouring the the five boroughs to bring us stories that might otherwise be overlooked: the internal lives of food delivery workers, the tangled, Erasure-scored romances of gay firefighters, the even more complex entanglements of Brooklyn’s black vampires, and the pathological narcissism of Ridgewood hipsters. Of course, the urge to scream “enough with this city!” is chronicled here too, but New York can hold multitudes. These love letters to our shared civic experiment will remind you why you love it.
