Sometimes City

United States | 2011 | Tom Jarmusch

Sometimes City

This portrait of Cleveland by an ex-resident focuses not on new developments, fancy restaurants, or venerable arts institutions but on the poor, struggling individuals and outcasts who try to subsist in a decaying, racially divided, economically-stratified city. City boosters may not approve of Jarmusch’s unvarnished vision or gritty poetry, but this, too, is Cleveland. Jarmusch will answer audience questions after the screening. With Harvey Pekar. “No symphony of a singing metropolis, Sometimes City is more a spare-parts scavenging of stories.” –Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice. Preceded at 9 by Jarmusch’s 8-min. Alfredo (2000), a portrait of artist Alfredo Martinez.

Total 88 min. DVD. plus Q&A.
