The film is a Nouvelle Vague-style documentary shot over nine years by Tyler Chase. It tells the story of an iconic building called Broken Angel and its creators, Arthur and Cynthia Wood, who fought being evicted from their New York City home of 27 years. (Arthur Wood now lives in Beacon.) A discussion with the filmmaker will follow the screening.
