SIDEWALK STORIES

  • Release Year: 1989
  • Runtime: 97 minutes
  • Directed By: Charles Lane
  • Country: USA

Lane plays a street artist whose efforts to care for an abandoned toddler are confounded by the many oddball characters he meets. Black-and-white and mostly silent, the film is an ingenious and whimsical effort by a black artist to give a voice to those who have none. | Read More
