Los Sures, which has been restored and given a real theatrical release after 32 years, has acquired a new layer of melancholy now that South Williamsburg has been transformed into a spendy area of glassy condos and hip restaurants.
Filmed in the summer of 1983, Diego Echeverria's Los Sures, a spirited but clear-eyed survey of South Williamsburg, transports viewers to the area before the blight of condos and bespoke-BBQ joints.
The ironies of gentrification will be a chief attraction for this lovely new 4K restoration of the 16mm original. But that theme is just a bonus in a picture whose in-the-trenches look at poverty is humane and, sadly, perpetually timely.
White Adidas kicks, boomboxes, break dancing - the 1984 documentary Los Sures is an eye-popping New York time capsule.
Los Sures reminds us that hiphop in its youth was for many not just about pleasure, but a matter of life-and-death.
Time capsule documentary on a Spanish ghetto in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Echeverria is the poet supreme of Southside's streets.
A beautiful document of a part of Brooklyn that has vanished through gentrification. Poignant and poetic.
