The film was selected for Grand Jury Prize competition at the 1987 Sundance Film Festival.  It was originally broadcast on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

Bonus: HIGH SCHOOL (1968) Directed by Frederick Wiseman

CSG6QcuUwAEvZMM

High School is a 1968 American documentary film directed by Frederick Wiseman that shows a typical day for a group of students at Northeast High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was one of the first direct cinema (or cinéma vérité) documentaries. It was shot over five weeks in March and April 1968. The film was not shown in Philadelphia at the time of its release, due to Wiseman’s concerns over what he called “vague talk” of a lawsuit.

The film was released in October 1968 by Wiseman’s distribution company, Zipporah Films. High School has been aired on PBS Television. Wiseman distributes his work (DVDs and 16mm prints) through Zipporah Films, which rents them to high schools, colleges, and libraries on a five-year long-term lease. High School was selected in 1991 for preservation in the National Film Registry.

Wiseman made a second documentary on high school, High School II, based on Central Park East Secondary School in New York City, released in 1994.

Doin’ Time in Times Square by Charlie Ahearn Old School Grimy NYC

51aob1ia6FL._SY445_Shot from his window, the forty minute video, called “Doin’ Time in Times Square,” includes everything you’d expect from candid 1980s Times Square footage—slow mo knock-out punches, neon XXX signs, plenty of cameos from the NYPD, and chaos. The chaos, however, is interspersed with quiet scenes from inside the apartment where all of this was being filmed from. It’s been described as “the home video from hell,” and was shown at the New York Film Festival in the 1990s.doin-time-in-times-square1367681186_thumb

 

“Described as the home video from hell, Doin Time in Times Square documents the view and action outside director Charlie Ahearns 43rd Street apartment window from 1981 to 1983. Charlie Ahearn, whose 1983 film Wild Style was a cult hip hop hit, was blessed with a generous view of the sleeze emporiums up Eighth Avenue and down 43rd. His window provides a view into midtown New Yorks street brutality in those dark years before it was cleaned up and Disneyfied, His Hi-8 camera captures rip-offs, drug sales, police stake-outs and fights – lots of fights. On any given day we see fist-fights, domestic squabbles and bad deals going down. It is both a social and personal document.”
