From Hype Williams to Nora Ephron, 90s New York cinema saw artists from across the five boroughs telling uniquely New York stories. It was a decade marked by social activism and breakthrough films by women and people of color, as well as late capitalist apocalyptic dread as the new millennium approached. This series looks back at 90s NYC through film, spanning the people, communities, culture, and social issues that created one of New York’s most indelible eras.
