Photojournalist Dennis W. Ho’s highly accomplished debut feature, Subway Preacher, is a taut, funny and frequently hair-raising documentary portrait of an unemployed, born-again Christian pastor who runs a 24-hour makeshift ministry on the busy corridor of the 42nd Street / Times Square subway station. In true indie fashion, Ho directed, shot, edited, and scored the film himself.
This screening is followed by a Q&A with Dennis W. Ho and a wine reception.
“Three years in the making, Ho’s robust debut film cut from over 350 hours of raw footage offers an intimate rabbit hole journey through a small world tucked deep in the folds of New York City. A timeless story of human flaws and pedestrian wisdom, SUBWAY PREACHER provides a bridge between documentary and narrative cinema, revealing in microcosm a modern day parable.” – No Pictures
