Walker Art Center says
Relive the exploding film scene of downtown Manhattan in the late 1970s and 1980s with rare films, footage of no wave performances, a conversation between Vera Dika and Ericka Beckman and directors Lizzie Borden and Charlie Ahearn in person.

This program highlights some of the challenging and at times controversial works that raise questions about a distinct moment in New York City culture, and brings in filmmakers who were a part of the scene.
