One of the films we named as among The Best And Brightest Of The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, “Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors,” has spent much of the year since hitting festivals around the world, including Karlovy Vary, London, Athens, Deauville and more. And now, the film is finally getting set to hit theatres and we’ve got a clip to give you a preview of the well-received drama.
Directed by New York filmmaker Sam Fleischner (“Wah Do Dem“), the story follows Ricky (Jesus Sanchez-Velez), an autistic youth who, after a particularly difficult day at school, escapes into the subways, while, above ground, his mom frantically searches for him. The drama is heightened with the setting of the film set against the backdrop of the waning days of Hurricane Sandy. And in this exclusive scene from the film, you can watch Ricky marvel at the multitudes as he takes in the variety of New Yorkers traveling on the train.
“Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors” opens in New York City on May 23rd. Watch below and read our review.
