Sidewalk Stories

Directed by Charles Lane
United States, 1989


Charles Lane plays a street artist whose efforts to care for an abandoned toddler are confounded by the many oddball characters he meets. Black-and-white and mostly silent, the film is a whimsical take by a black artist to give a voice to those who have none.
