Event Description

The City Lost and Found Film Series presents

LIVING LOS SURES (2014) & lOS SURES (1984)

Part omnibus film, part media archeology, part deep-map and city symphony, the project uses Los Sures, a brilliant work of cinema verite directed by Diego Echeverria in 1984, as a starting point for the investigations of more than thirty artists over the course of four years. Its a story of a longstanding Latino community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn that is defeating displacement and surviving the growth machine. It restores a lost film, remixes local histories, reinvestigates Williamsburg's Southside today, and hopes to reunites a neighborhood around a sustainable future. (
