First Friday: Screening of “Flyin’ Cut Sleeves”
Flyin' Cut Sleeves is 60-minute documentary film produced and directed by Henry Chalfant and Rita Fecher. Completed in 1993, the film portrays street gang presidents in the Bronx. The project grew out of the experiences of Rita Fecher, the film's co-producer, who taught in a South Bronx school in the late 1960's and early 1970's, became intimately involved with the gangs, their leaders, and the leaders' families and began to document their lives.
