1982 • dir Susan Seidelman w/Susan Berman, Brad Rijn, Richard Hell • 93 min • DCP

Susan Seidelman’s pre-Desperately Seeking Susan punk DIY film, SMITHEREENS follows a free-spirited, opportunistic runaway (Berman) as she desperately tries to make herself important to the NYC punk scene – only to find that most of the action has moved out to L.A.

Staff Pick: Erica

“Smithereens has an energy and vitality that over 30 years later still leaps off the screen.”
– Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, The Blue Lenses

“As unsparing a sketch of twentysomething life in New York City as American independent cinema has yet offered.”
– Steve Macfarlane,
