Dan Levin will be screening CAPTURED, a documentary by Dan Levin, Ben Solomon and Jenner Furst, about Clayton Patterson and the Lower East Side of New York City. Clayton Patterson will be there with one of the filmmakers to answer questions and take photographs.
Patterson, a photographer and filmmaker, has spent much of the past 25 years obsessively documenting the artists, drag queens, heroin addicts, rabbis, dealers, and new immigrants of the Lower East Side."History" is the key word, he said. "For over a hundred years, the Lower East Side was a magic crucible where people were inspired to great art and ideas. The Lower East Side probably changed the history of America five hundred times."
