In the tradition of New York’s greatest street photographers, Free Time is a new film steeped in lustrous B&W footage that Co-Directors Manfred Kirchheimer and Walter Hess shot throughout the city from 1958-1960.

Free Time rebuffs post-war perspectives of city life in the late 50s. It’s an all-encompassing look at how real ‘New Yawkers’ lived in one of the most idolized eras of the 20th century. Numerous vignettes illustrate an urban vibe that some of us might once have known yet the world has largely forgotten.
