Join us for the world premiere screening of The Manhattan Front at the Roxie Theater during the SF IndieFest. Two screenings featuring live music from the Dave Len Scott Quartet, Beth Custer, and Miguel Govea.
SYNOPSIS: In this fantastical film, a young girl conjures its story from the lines of a chalk circle. Once upon a time, in 1915, a German saboteur arrived to Manhattan to interrupt the export of American munitions to Britain. He soon found a collaborator in a wayward stevedore who unwittingly led him to a group of labor anarchists. Sabotage soon turned these bedfellows into agents of the other’s tragic end. How America entered World War 1 playfully plays out through archival images and the theatrical rendition of lives as they might have been lived.
