Little Fugitive

1 Feb 2014

After their mother leaves them alone in New York for the weekend, seven year-old Joey is tricked into thinking he’s killed his older brother. So he runs away to the funfair at Coney Island, to get lost in the rides and the spectacle. Film-maker Morris Engel and his team see so much in him: a cowboy, the boy in Shane, the kid in Chaplin’s The Kid. It is the first true indie movie, capturing real life in the streets and credited by Truffaut with inspiring the French New Wave.
