Gimme the Loot – 10th Anniversary Screening

Thursday, September 16, 2021

Q&A with filmmaker Adam Leon and actors Tashiana Washington, Ty Hickson, and Meeko, moderated by actor Fred Hechinger!

Dissed by a rival gang, Bronx graffiti artists Malcolm and Sofia hatch a plan to get revenge by tagging an iconic landmark—but they need $500 to pull off their spectacular scheme. Over the course of two whirlwind, sun-soaked summer days, they travel on an epic urban adventure involving black-market spray cans, illicit bodegas, stolen sneakers, a high-stakes heist and a beautiful, stoned girl who holds the key to their becoming the biggest writers in the city.

Join filmmaker Adam Leon for a special screening of GIMME THE LOOT in celebration of its tenth birthday. Shot on a shoestring budget over the sweltering 2011 summer, this Indie Spirit and SXSW Grand Jury-winning charmer is as much of an ode to true independent storytelling as it is as an unique addition to the canon that is New York on film. Intro and Q+A moderated by actor and “Loothead” Fred Hechinger (White Lotus, Underground Railroad, Italian Studies) with cast and crew in attendance. “
