Los Sures

Thirty years ago, South Williamsburg NYC was known as “Los Sures,” a place imbued with vibrant life, a community of close-knit Puerto Rican and Dominican families living amidst everyday economic struggle. Today, with the neighborhood fully gentrified, it feels vital to remember this lost world, and Diego Echeverria’s essential documentary, shot in the early eighties on 16mm , brings it all back to life, through the eyes of five different residents. Rediscovered in 2007, and restored in 2010 as part of an expansive documentary project about the Southside of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
