Richard Sandler

The Gods of Times Square (1999) DVD_NTSC, color, 112 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

The plethora of religious zealots that (daily) would gather there to preach against the "sins" of secular life. The backdrop for their rants were the 60-foot supermodels and pop neon signs whose proselytizing pitch was wrapped in the primary colors of conformity. The work was shot from 1992-1998 as Times Square was "Disneyfied" for the new millenium. In his quest for gods in Times Square, Sandler speaks with mystics and with the reasoned and the unreasonable followers of the standard creeds. Spirituality is found, but only in the metaphysics of a timeless cast of gritty New Yorkers.
