Landlord Blues (1986) 16mm, color, 90 min

Genre: Narrative, Experimental

Keywords: Literature & Theater

Sometimes in a modern city it's easier to beat a murder rap than it is to get a new lease. George (Mark Boone Junior) is trying to hold on to his modest bike shop despite the efforts of his slum landlord, Albert Streck (Richard Litt), to terminate his lease on a technicality and evict him. When Streck turns nasty, hiring first a lawyer and then even an arsonist, George turns to his friends, a street-wise crew of Lower East Side loyalists, for help in beating Streck at his own game.
