Must Read

Scorsese interviewing his parents at their home on Elizabeth Street, in the film "Italianamerican."

This month’s installment of the always fascinating LES Heritage Film Series will include film legend Martin Scorsese interviewing his parents in Italianamerican (1974, 26 min., 16mm).  Scorsese visits with them in their home on Elizabeth Street while they are preparing dinner.  His parents (who are both apparently very good story-tellers) open up about their experience as Italian-American immigrants, and reminiscence about the Scorsese family in Sicily.

Also screening: City of Contrasts (1931, 28 min., 16mm) by Irving Browning. The film features images from New York City during the Depression, “exploring roof-top luxury as well as street-level reality.” It includes footage of Chinatown, the Lower East Side, Little Italy and Coney Island.

Both films will be screened with a 16mm projector. The series screens films on the first Tuesday of every month.

Tuesday, March 6th // Seward Park Library // 192 East Broadway // FREE // 6:30pm.
