Urban Theatre Movement Presents Short Eyes: A Sneak Peek Behind the Bars...
Cinematography by Mark Riley.. http://www.mgriley.com/
Edited by Spencer Weitzel.. http://www.facebook.com/trebledmovie
Featuring original music by Tusk.. http://tusk3.bandcamp.com/

Short Eyes, a term prisoners use to brand a child molester, reveals the racial, sexual and dangerously seditious personal politics wielded by an explosive group of inmates at an unnamed House of Detention in New York City. Their petty ploys and communal rebellions are unexpectedly disturbed when they are joined by a middle-class white man accused of raping a young girl. Written during Miguel Piñero's incarceration for armed robbery in Sing Sing prison, the play debuted Off-Broadway in 1974 at The Public Theatre in New York City and on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theater to critical acclaim including: 6 Tony Award nominations, the New York Critics Circle Award and an Obie Award for the "Best Play of the Year".
