Support was awarded to RAMON ALBERTO NUEZ for Concrete Jungles: The True Story of Street Kids in America, a feature-length documentary that looks at the unsettling story of street kids (homeless, runaway, at-risk and outcast) in America. It will examine the invisibility in a largely apathetic society. It will also look at youth outreach programs, what they do, their importance to kids in need, and their struggles to remain operational in a sharply reduced funding environment. Nuez will employ stylistically unusual production elements to make his film both appealing and relevant to the very youth it examines.

Founded in 1989, COLLABORATIVE URBAN SCULPTURE PROJECTS, Brooklyn, New York, supports community-based art projects that foster collaborations among artists and social service organizations. It creates innovative venues for emerging visual and performing artists, and engages diverse audiences in the experience of these works. Jerome funding of $15,000 was authorized for Witness, a public art work by BRADLEY MCCALLUM, which will present experiences of police-related violence in New York City in a series of public art installations. The piece will be installed at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine and in communities where incidences of police-related violence have occurred. Audio and sculptural elements will document specific histories of the victims. The working concept for the site-specific sculptures is to create cast iron units, similar to fire department call boxes, installed at street intersections throughout the five counties that comprise New York City.

ZACHARY HEINZERLING received support for Cutie and the Boxer, a feature-length documentary meditation on companionship, sacrifice and the creative spirit. This love story explores the chaotic 40-year marriage of two New York-based Japanese artists, Ushio and Noriko Shinohara. Bound by years of quiet resentment, disappointments, and missed professional opportunities, they are locked in a hard, dependent love. Through candid scenes between the couple, the viewer comes to understand that the stark differences in the Shinoharas art and personalities are the basis for a deep and challenging symbiosis that has kept them together for 40 years. The film is a challenging and moving portrait of a couple wrestling with the eternal themes of sacrifice, unrealized ambitions, and aging, against the background of lives dedicated to art.
