Before gentrification, New York City was a gritty and inspiring place. And in its midst was Arlene Gottfried, whose eye for the sublime caught it all. Sometimes Overwhelming is a manic yet romantic ode tot the people of New York City in the 1970s and 80s. From Coney Island's eccentric denizens to a Hasid at Riis Beach's nude bay to the disco nights of sexual abandon and the children in the original Village Halloween parade, Sometimes Overwhelming is a delightfully lighthearted look at the most outrageous people, in the most original milieu, you might ever see.
