Moira Tierney

Synopsis

Shot on Elder Avenue in the Bronx: a mural painted in honour of Amadou Diallo, who lived just down the block; daily life in the 'hood, where people are de facto targets for police bullets, but go about their daily lives regardless, doing the shopping, sweeping the street, looking after the kids ...'
