It's the summer of 1989 in New York's Lower East Side. Homeless people have turned Tompkins Square Park into a tent city. On a nearby corner lot deeper in Alphabet City, where punk became famous and Allen Ginsburg wrote much of his poetry, a bunch of people try to make a soup kitchen work. They scrounge their food supplies from restaurants, fish markets and dumpsters. They build fires in the dirt and cook on old sewer grates, and ladle out broth into Styrofoam cups. However the authorities threaten to close down the soup kitchen, supposedly to be replaced by apartments for the elderly and the negotiatios with the city administration are stormy. There is no concerned voice-over citing with statistics, no awkward interwiews with housing commissioners, none of the conventions of the television social documentary. The impeccably constructed black and white images resonate with revolutionary romaticism and disenchanted pragmatism.
