The Gods of Times Square

Sunday, Feb 11, 2024 at 5:30 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Richard Sandler. 1999, 93 mins. DCP. Shot over six years, The Gods of Times Square captures the radical transformation of “the Crossroads of the Universe” from a democratic, interracial home to free speech and free spirits into a sanitized, soulless corporate theme park. Legendary photographer Richard Sandler documents this significant and critically relevant moment in New York City history through the words of Times Square’s colorful residents, who paint a picture of their home and safe haven that was disregarded by self-appointed moral arbiters and grandstanding politicians.
