Directed by Martin Scorsese | 1973

With Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, David Proval

This monthly series brings a prominent artistic or cultural figure to BAM to discuss the film that inspired their passion for cinema, followed by a screening of the film.

Martin Scorsese’s breakthrough gangster saga captures the lawlessness-reigns atmosphere of 1970s New York City with a whirlwind vérité energy. A live-wire portrait of Italian-American machismo set to a jukebox soundtrack, it follows the intertwining fates of two sons of Little Italy: Harvey Keitel’s Charlie, a reluctant Mafioso tormented by Catholic guilt, and Johnny Boy, his unhinged cousin, played with explosive unpredictability by a riveting young Robert De Niro.

Inspired by the Screen Epiphanies series at London's BFI Southbank

Before the film, Laura Poitras will discuss how Mean Streets inspired her love of cinema.
