Los Sures

In the early 1980s, Diego Echeverria took a 16mm camera into the streets of South Williamsburg, then a primarily Puerto Rican neighborhood known as one of the city’s poorest, most crime-ridden areas. What the filmmaker captures is a thriving street culture in which music, breakdancing, and graffiti abound. This lost-and-found time capsule is an essential record of pre-gentrification Brooklyn and a testament to a community’s resilience.
