ON THE STREET (the documentary) is opening the Big Apple Film Festival on Tuesday Nov. 3rd at
Tribeca Cinemas at 9pm
.  You can get tickets only online at:
http://www.bigapplefilmfestival.com/program_guide.html 
I'm told it will sell out, so get your tickets soon.  Your ticket stub will get you into the party afterwards.  
Many people in the film are going to be there seeing it for the first time.


In 1980, the Village Voice hired Amy Arbus to photograph the people of Manhattan for a section in the paper called “On the Street.” From 1980 to 1990, The Voice published over five hundred of Amy Arbus’ street fashion portraits.  This new documentary by John Spellos explores the impact of those photographs and delves into the Village scene, with its budding musicians, designers, and artists, some of whom went on to international fame. Watch Arbus as she photographs many of the same people some 25 years later and discovers where it has led them to today.
