About the Film
Sidewalk Stories was the debut of Charles Lane, released the same year as Do the Right Thing. Like Spike Lee's career-maker, the film focuses on black underclass in Brooklyn. However, Sidewalk Stories is a silent comedy, tipping its hat to Chaplin's The Kid, while also addressing homelessness.

The film's accompanying score by Stephen Horne was debuted at this screening and featured a variety of instruments including accordion, piano and drums, played by one man.
