The Bowery becomes a nexus of shattered dreams when a merchant has 72 hours to pay his rent. Facing extinction, his ramshackle tent of antiquities lures a troop of misfits, freaks and renegades who form a tableaux vivant full of carnival pageantry, white lies and victimless crime in a fleeting glimpse of Downtown New York.
Starting @ 11pm

Horacio Cardo, illustrating the more distinguished newspapers and magazines all over the world, is in the center of a storm that arose following an exhibition of his artistic works that was held in Buenos-Aires, Argentina – his homeland. The theme of the exhibition is Cardo’s loathing of psychoanalysis and, mainly, of its founding father – Sigmund Freud. Cardo’s works, with or without regard to Freud, are, no doubt, very intense, unique, daring, surprising and impressive. The exhibition was preceded by – and based on – Cardo’s book: “Sigmund, Fraud and psychoanalysis”. (No, it is not a typo – Cardo spells ‘Fraud’ instead of ‘Freud’ and this is the shortest possible expression of his views on the issue…). Underlining Cardo’s works is the notion that “Freudism is based upon over-worked imagination, detached from reality and supported by a series of fairy tales”. As Buenos-Aires leads the world in the volume of the population being psychoanalyzed – the offsetting, adverse and smart artistic work of Horacio Cardo is a necessary cultural tool worth using for the purpose of probing the mysterious world of psychoanalysis. Fragments of the book, and works of art, are presented in the film – highlighting the bitter judgments of the artist concerning his nemesis: Freud.

Q & A following screening with filmmakers Dan Levin, Ben Solomon, Jenner Furst and Subject Clayton Patterson. This is another CAN NOT MISS program with one of New York City’s most interesting icons and documentarians.
Since 1979 Clayton Patterson has dedicated his life to documenting the final era of raw creativity and lawlessness in New York City’s Lower East Side, a neighborhood famed for art, music and revolutionary minds. Traversing the outside edge he’s recorded a dark and colorful society, from drag to hardcore, heroin, homelessness, political chaos and ultimately gentrification. His odyssey from voyeur to provocateur reveals that it can take losing everything you love to find your own significance.
