capsule documentary on a Spanish ghetto
in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn."
by Dennis Schwartz
It's shot on 16-millimeter film. It never received a theatrical release.
Five diverse residents of the area are interviewed. The two men include a 20-year-old car thief and an older gentleman struggling to get by running a small construction company. Two of the three women get by on welfare and the other is a college grad who is a dedicated worker for a community-based help organization.
Life is tough for the residents, who are hard-pressed to make enough money to survive. The residents tell us in their own words what they feel.
