A film screening of Sidewalk Stories followed by a Q&A with writer/director Charles Lane and composer Marc Marder at Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation Pioneer Works is proud to bring Sidewalk Stories back to New York – the very grounds where the film was shot 26 years ago – after a release of its restored version at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2013. Twenty years before The Artist, Sidewalk Stories portrays the friendship of a tramp and a child, in a moving and funny homage to Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid. Both witty and tender, Charles Lane’s gorgeous black and white comedy pays tribute to the silent film era, with a score composed by Marc Marder. This gripping tale of the underprivileged and its beautiful portrayal of the city, Sidewalk Stories uniquely draws on social satire to deliver a timeless message of generosity and love. The film is an important work of the New African-American cinema of the 1980s as it conveyed a strong political message, along with Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing and John Singleton’s Boyz N The Hood. A Q&A with writer/director Charles Lane and Composer Marc Marder will follow the screeningSee more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
