Overview

From the late 1960s into the 1970s, Rita Fecher taught in the South Bronx, a community then riddled with street gangs and violent crime. Rather than shy away from the young gangsters, Fecher got involved, introducing herself to the gang leaders and their members, ultimately documenting their lives in a series of highly candid interviews. Flyin' Cut Sleeves sees Fecher return to the community 20 years later to visit with some of her previous subjects, inviting them to revisit their experiences, and to reveal the life choices they made in the intervening decades. ~ Carly Wray
