There's been some really interesting films coming over the pond of late. One film i've been excited about since its release nearly a year ago is Captured from Clayton Patterson
Possibly one of the most important films to come out of The Lower East Side.
For me films like this are like an insight into the birth of this culture, they are inspirational, they are educational and are a must watch for anyone interested in culture on whatever level...
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 recorded a dark and colorful society, from drag, 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.
