  • Deadly Art of Survival

    1979. USA. Directed by Charlie Ahearn. Ahearn’s first Super 8 feature is a Bruce Lee–style docu-epic shot in the housing projects of the Lower East Side. The story revolves around the many rivals—both real and imaginary—of the real-life martial arts school run by the film’s star, Nathan Ingram. 58 min.

  • Underground USA

    1980. USA. Directed by Eric Mitchell. In this 16mm film, a street hustler named Victor (Mitchell) meets Vicki (Patti Astor), a Manhattan movie star who has fallen from fame, at New York’s legendary Mudd Club. The two entertain each other for a while, but an act of betrayal leads to a bleak ending. 85 min.
