37- The Movie

26 images Created 13 Feb 2016

"37" is a movie by Dutch Director Puk Grasten. The film is inspired by a true story set in 1964 in the Bronx in New York, where several neighbors witness the brutal rape and murder of Kitty Genovese and did not intervene in trying to help her before it was too late.

The film peeks into the lives of three different families, the lonely neighbor and the doorman. Viewers connect with the neighbors and understand their decisions not to act upon the murder for they kept busy following their day-to-day struggles without the need to get involved in someone else's business.

They deal with their personal lives the same way they deal with the murder -- if they don't talk about it, it didn't happen. Quite the opposite to the current theory of "if you see something, say something" having roamed around all over the City.

I spent a month on the movie set as the official photographer for this movie and, not only did I learn a lot about dim, scary, homicide lighting sets, but had the pleasure of working with the fantastic team of Game7Films.

The movie features: Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black), Maria Dizza (While We're Young) and Michael Potts (the Wire) among others.
