Gangsters, Immigrants and Labor! New York’s mean streets have long been gritty and compelling locations for filmmakers. See how New York– and New Yorkers– were depicted on film when the city was the epicenter of the film industry, and view portrayals of gangsters and immigrants which strongly influence filmmakers today. 

Film historian, author and former CUNY Graduate Center Professor Robert Singer and Professor Frank Percaccio take you on an exciting romp through New York’s history on celluloid through rarely seen silent films and more, including Regeneration, The Italian, and View from the Bridge. Rain or shine.
