Work-in-progress for a feature documentary on New York City subway musicians. 


On a sensuous musical journey through New York City’s subways, we come to know the intimate dramas of a group of talented performers: from a beautiful young troubadour hoping to break through to a homeless teen dancing for survival.

Five intimate stories from the underground heart of New York.

I loved it on all levels- content, humanity... You identify so closely with the people on screen that their experience is yours. That's when documentary is at its peak. - Albert Maysles
