International premiere
Jeanne Liotta, whose former film Observando el cielo was internationally acclaimed, filmed with her Super 8 camera the rituals of her catholic neighbors living at the Lower East Side in Manhattan during Easter. Crosswalk reveals those images and sounds and becomes a fascinating work of experimental urban Anthropology. This is genuine realism from New York.
