Field Niggas

Directed by Khalik Allah • 2014 • United States

Khalik Allah’s stunning feature debut combines elements of urban street portraiture, observational documentary, and avant-garde technique to create a hallucinatory sensory experience. Filmed around the intersection of 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City’s East Harlem, this audiovisual collage captures, with profound humanity, the faces and personalities of the homeless residents and neighborhood regulars who congregate there. Set to asynchronous shards of interviews, these indelible portraits take on an almost ecstatic spiritual dimension even as they reveal cutting truths about addiction, poverty, race, and class in America.
