Step Right Up
Luke Marshall, Silver Spring, MD, Doc Short, 28 Minutes
Welome to a world where the bizarre and the everyday meet. A world where hammering a nail into your head is done in front of an audience. A world where men and women will risk injury or death to swallow a sword. This is the world of the sideshow!
Step right up will take you into this world, from its history, right up to meeting today's performers. Think you have the stomach to handle this documentary? Then Step Right Up!
The Prince Of Mermaid Avenue
Charles Denson , Brooklyn, NY, Documentary Feature, 60 minutes
The story of Jimmy Prince, owner of Major Meats on Mermaid Avenue, who retired after a sixty-year run as an anchor of the community.
