Grand Street Winter (1990)

Click HERE for Ted Barron’s beautiful short film Grand Street Winter (1990), which includes lots of footage of painter Kit Keith picking her way through old-days Williamsburg and an illuminating glimpse into Mike DeCapite’s kitchen and working method at that time. The film features Kit, Moe the Cat, DeCapite, Tony Maimone, Doug Morgan, and Jim Krane, but the real star of it is Ted’s photography.
