September 11, 2020… we invite you to watch a Glass Eye favorite, LIBERTY KID.
Directed by Ilya Chaiken. Starring Al Thompson and Kareem Savinon.
Produced by GEP pals Mike Ryan, Roger Kass and Brent Kunkle.
“Liberty Kid elevates that woeful genre, the 9/11 movie,
by keeping a ‘Wire’-worthy ear to the street talk of south Williamsburg
and maintaining a shrewd balance of the personal and the political…
an uncommonly acute, deftly played drama of the New York working class.”
“Chaiken makes us feel for her characters… “Liberty Kid” is a poignant
look at what might be called 9/11′s collateral damage.”
