Almost a year after winning a Special Jury Prize at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, Sam Fleischner's "Stand Clear of the Closing Doors" is now set for a theatrical release. The narrative feature film, starring newcomer Jesus Sanchez-Velez and Andrea Suarez Paz, received rave reviews for its authentic portrayal of New York City and its notable integration of Hurricane Sandy into the plot.

"Stand Clear of the Closing Doors" follows a thirteen year-old boy who suffers from autism and finds himself lost in the city's subway system. Due to his status as an illegal immigrant, his desperate mother must find him with whatever little means she has while her son explores and discovers NYC's countless eccentricities as only an alienated youth could. The danger increases, however, when Hurricane Sandy (which occurred right in the middle of shooting) is set to destroy the city.

Indiewire's chief film critic Eric Kohn wrote that "the movie brilliantly inhabits its young, confused protagonist's mind, conveying the precise means by which New York's urban details come alive for him."

The film, which was acquired by Oscilloscope Laboratories, is set for a theatrical release on May 23. Check out the trailer below:
