LOS SURES is an unforgettable documentary filmed in the 1980’s that depicts the vibrant Latino communities living in  Williamsburg, Brooklyn before gentrification.  

 

Synopsis: Diego Echeverria’s film skillfully represents the challenges residents of the Southside faced: poverty, drugs, gang violence, crime, abandoned real estate, racial tension, single-parent homes, and inadequate local resources. The complex portrait also celebrates the vitality of this largely Puerto Rican and Dominican community, showing the strength of their culture, their creativity, and their determination to overcome a desperate situation. Beautifully restored for the 30th anniversary premiere at the New York Film Festival, this documentary is an invaluable piece of New York City history.

 

“Trenchant and eye-opening.”– The Hollywood Reporter

“An authenticity that has been captured by no fiction film I’ve ever seen.”– L.A. Weekly

“Both an invaluable record of pre-gentrification Brooklyn and an ode to a community’s resilience.” – BAMcinéma
