Synopsis

The tale of the motley crew of renegade filmmakers that emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous period of New York history and a look at the way this misfit cinema used the deserted, bombed-out Lower East Side landscapes to craft daring works that would go on to influence independent film today.
