50th Anniversary! New 35mm restoration! Stunningly restored by UCLA, THE CONNECTION is one of the most vital and fascinating of all American independent films. Banned by censors and panned by critics (“sordid and disagreeable,” sniffed the Times), Clarke’s provocative film focuses on a group of heroin addicts waiting for their dealer in a grungy New York loft. Throughout, the play’s brilliant Beat dialogue alternates with a propulsive jazz score.

THE CONNECTION was preserved by the UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding by the Film Foundation.
