a semi-documentary made by shirley clarke, recognized as one of the leading independent film makers of the early 60s new american cinema. starring real harlem youth and gang members, the film explores the ghetto slum life of drugs and violence without the heavy moralizing of most hollywood films of the period. brilliant editing and killer jazz score by the dizzy gillespie quintet

Shirley Clarke died not too long ago, and STILL the bitch asses sit on this movie. WHEN can we finally fucking see this?

Nice document of Harlem life in the 60s, but pretty dull story. I don't know if it's just the sound system at the MoMA theater, but I found the sound really harsh and jumbled together - too bad since the film was part of the Jazz on Film series there. Could barely hear the music.
