‘NYC, 1981’, A Documentary Short About One of the Most Statistically Violent Years in New York City’s History

“NYC, 1981” is a documentary short created by A24 Films that explores one of the most statistically violent years in New York City’s history with the people who lived through it.

What I remember about 1981 is it was epitomized by the film with Kurt Russell, “Escape From New York,” because if you had the wherewithal, you were getting out of here as quick as you can.

The short was created to help promote the new film A Most Violent Year, a drama set in the in New York in 1981. The subject is also explored in the blog, NYC, 1981.
