The Gods of Times Square, a documentary by Richard Sandler.
Introduction by Tara Anderson, discussion with the artist to follow
Before the Disneyfication of the melting-pot mecca, Times Square was home to religious zealots offering every kind of strident redemption. Street journalist and documentarian Richard Sandler has created a cinema verite film on the rich characters of New York’s secular cathedral of skyscrapers.
