  • Sunday School: Little Fugitive

    Long considered a cornerstone of the American independent and cinema verité movements, Little Fugitive was also greatly admired by Cassavetes and Truffaut, whose first films both show signs of its influence. In it, a young boy is tricked into thinking he has killed his older brother and goes on the lam to Coney Island, while the very much alive older brother struggles to find him before their mother returns home. The black-and-white cinematography subtly reflects the passage of time, and the overall film captures the fears, mysteries, and joys encountered by a young boy on the streets and boardwalks of Brooklyn.
