Blank City A FILM BY Céline Danhier

2010 NR 94 minutes

In the late 1970s and ‘80s downtown Manhattan was the anchor of vanguard filmmaking, the undisputed center of American—some would say international—art and film.  Blank City tells the long-overdue tale of the motley crew of renegade filmmakers that emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous period of New York history. It’s a fascinating look at the way this misfit cinema used the deserted, bombed-out Lower East Side landscapes to craft daring works that would go on to profoundly influence Independent Film today.
