With the restoration of LOS SURES, a brilliant work of cinéma vérité, LIVING LOS SURES is an expansive project about the Southside of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Known by its long-term Latino residents as Los Sures, the neighborhood was one of the poorest in New York City in the late 70s and early 80s. Today, it is the site of a battle between local identity and luxury lifestyle. Begin our mini-screening here:
“Trenchant and eye-opening.”– The Hollywood Reporter
“An authenticity that has been captured by no fiction film I’ve ever seen.”– L.A. Weekly
“Both an invaluable record of pre-gentrification Brooklyn and an ode to a community’s resilience.” – BAMcinématek
“A massive mixed-media project that defies easy categorization.” – IndieWire
