Community Happenings


A screening of THE KRUTCH at the Harlemwood Film

Written and directed by Judith Escalona

Monday, June 20, 7PM

The Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Avenue
(between East 103rd and East 104th Streets)

"The Krutch" is a surreal narrative about a Puerto Rican psychoanalyst
with a long-suppressed identity problem that erupts with some dire
The film is unique in exploring the mental anguish and shame associated
with racism. Stylistically akin to Buñuel with an eye towards Godard,
it occupies an absurdist space that keeps it from descending into the
maudlin cliches of realism. With Jaime Sanchez as the mysterious Dr. Guzman and Cathy Haase as his unsuspecting patient Mrs. Kleist.

I will also be participating in a panel of filmmakers that evening.
