This image has been archived or removed.
Today is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the infamous Tompkins Square Park riots. One of its most visible chroniclers, Clayton Patterson, is opening the vault on his full tape collection from that night. As previously reported, the screening of the unedited footage (all 214 minutes) will take place tonight at the Anthology Film Archives, 7pm.
But there’s more. On Thursday night, he’s showing a series of short films on “art, performance, and popular struggle” at the New Museum (“From the Underground and Below”). Then on Saturday, Captured will be shown at La Plaza Cultural on East 9th Street.
This is Patterson’s week, it seems.
