Lenny Shiller is a lifelong Brooklyn resident and classic car collector. He has amassed a staggering 58 rare classic cars, while he also owns hundreds of vintage bikes, motorcycles, and memorabilia. Lenny spends his time restoring and maintaining his collection, with the intention one day to pass them on to the next generation. The walls of his 12,000 sq ft garage in Gowanus are stacked with car parts he has collected over the years, the space resembling part working garage, part museum.

Trailer for WE DON'T NEED A MAP - a bold and provocative essay film by Warwick Thornton (director of the celebrated feature, SWEET COUNTRY), about the deeply spiritual meaning of the Southern Cross constellation for Aboriginal people. The film challenges us to consider the place of the Southern Cross in the psyche of all Australians. Imbued with Warwick’s cavalier spirit, this is a thought-provoking ride through Australia’s cultural and political landscape.
