“With a wild spontaneity that can morph from riveting to fun to tense and alien in the space of a half-block, Sidewalk Stories is as emblematic a New York film as there is.” (Slant)
Winner of the Prix du Public at Cannes, where the 12-minute ovation broke a record, Sidewalk Stories is a moving and funny homage to Chaplin’s The Kid. This gorgeous black-and-white film is an important work of the New African-American cinema of the 1980s, along with Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing and John Singleton’s Boyz N the Hood. It’s finally been restored and is now back to its former beauty. 2k digital restoration.
Q&A filmmaker Charles Lane and JBFC Faculty Sean Weiner. Dobbs Ferry resident Charles Lane attended Purchase College, where his short A Place in Time won a Student Academy Award. Lane later earned a Rockefeller Foundation Grant, NAACP Award and mulitple festival honors for Sidewalk Stories.
