    Unlike most Italian-Americans, Moe Albanese never left Little Italy. Born on Elizabeth Street in 1925, Moe grew up here and helped his parents run the small butcher shop "Albanese Meats." Today, this shop is the last that remains of Elizabeth Street's Italian-American history. At eighty-three years old Moe is the shop's only employee. He trims meat to his customer's specifications while recounting the history of the neighborhood and the people who lived there. The documentary THE LAST BUTCHER IN LITTLE ITALY uses Mr. Albanese's oral history to tell the story of one of the first Italian enclaves in America and documents its changing landscape.

    "The Copper Cowboy" is a short documentary profile of street performer Jason Joseph Gilbert. Jason's collarbone was broken when he was attacked by five guys. In order to survive while healing from his debilitating injury, Jason developed the character of "The Copper Cowboy" by standing still. He was eventually making more money performing this character than he did in his sheet metal job. Jason dreams of one day owning a home where he can live with his girlfriend Nic, but for now -- its performing on the streets and struggling to find a place to sleep each night.
