BLANK CITY tells the long-overdue tale of a disparate crew of renegade filmmakers who emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous moment in New York history.
In the late 1970's and mid 80's, when the city was still a wasteland of cheap rent and cheap drugs, these directors crafted daring works that would go on to profoundly influence the development of independent film as we know it today. The soundtrack includes: Patti Smith, The Contortions, The Bush Tetras, Sonic Youth and more.

We currently have the capacity to successfully execute streamlined productions while following CDC guidelines, using minimal crew while our producers and post production team work remotely from their home studios.
