Synopsis

Brave New York is a free-form documentary video that loosely chronicles the last 12 years of intense change in the East Village "hood." From the reopening of a newly curfewed Tompkins Square Park and Wigstock in '92, to the destruction of the cherished Loisaida Community Gardens, to the yuppie invasions of the dot come years, to the present era, idelibly stamped with post 9/11 grief, this durable, lusty neighborhood survives in spite of a real estate gold rush that has excluded all but the well-to-do. The movie's main voices are those of the artists and street people who wisdom and commentaries upon the dominant culture give us pause amidst the speedy approach of a "Brave New World."

 

Sway is a free-form documentary edited from 14 years of daily video shooting in the New York City's subways.
