message from filmmaker Karen Kramer

On July 22nd, THE BALLAD OF GREENWICH VILLAGE will open at the Quad Cinema on 13th Street and play for the entire week.

THE BALLAD OF GREENWICH VILLAGE is a 70 minute documentary that tells the story of the artists, rebels, and bohemians who came to New York's Greenwich Village over many decades, and changed the face of American culture through their art and politics.
The film portrays important political and social movements that started in Greenwich Village - such as the first interracial jazz club, the earliest Socialist newspapers from before World War I, and the Stonewall rebellion that sparked gay liberation. The film also interweaves on-camera interviews with many well-known artists who had their creative roots in Greenwich Village such as Tim Robbins, Maya Angelou, Woody Allen, Norman Mailer, Edward Albee, Richie Havens, Peter,Paul& Mary - as well as local painters, drag queens, club owners and activists.

Interweaving past and present, and combining 16mm footage, archival photographs, Hollywood movies, cartoons, stories from people living and dead, famous and obscure -and with a soundtrack ranging from ragtime to bebop to folk music- the film is a celebration of what was America's true bohemia.
