The Collector of Bedford Street

A valid video file was found, or could not be loaded!

The Collector of Bedford Street is an Academy Award nominated short documentary that follows the filmmaker's 60 year old neighbor, Larry Selman, a community activist and fundraiser who has an intellectual disability.  Every year, Larry collects thousands of dollars for charities while living at the poverty line. When Larry’s primary caregiver becomes unable to care for him, his New York City neighborhood community rallies together to protect his independent lifestyle by establishing an adult trust fund in his behalf.

The Collector of Bedford Street is “the feel good movie of the year” (Hollywood Reporter) that simultaneously “achieved more than the countless professional speeches I have ever given on inclusive communities” (Doreen Croser, ED American Association on Mental Retardation).  Critics rave that “you won’t find a sweeter 34 minutes on TV this year” (US News and World Report) while academics and professionals declare that the film is “an absolute "must buy/must show/must discuss" in colleges and universities” (Rud Turnbull, co-director of the Beach Center on Disability at the University of Kansas).

Director Alice Elliott’s film is a rare treat: it is as heartwarming as it is instructive; as thought-provoking as it is touching; as enlightening as it is inspiring. As the LA Times calls it, it is a “socially conscious celebration of the human spirit."

Woo Who? May Wilson
This pioneering film, made in 1969 before the women's liberation movement of the 1970s, is a vibrant portrait of the artist. We see her acquiring young new friends and a new self-image, and we watch her gain success as "Grandma Moses of the Underground." We enter into her distinctive world and share her innermost thoughts about artistic process, about the difficult readjustment to being on her own, and about becoming a full-time artist later in life.

Prodigal Sons
PRODIGAL SONS, "a whiplash doc by an exciting new talent" (SF Weekly), was selected by VIDEO LIBRARIAN as one of the top films of the year, landed on ten more similar lists, and won 13 awards, including the FIPRESCI prize. PRODIGAL SONS was nominated for the Cinema Eye Honors' Outstanding Achievement in a Debut Feature Film award, and GLAAD Media Awards' Outstanding Documentary award.
