In the 1960s, the abandoned factories of New York’s SoHo were occupied by artists from around the world, transforming this neighbourhood in the heartland of art experimentation. A group of artists, The Karamazoffs, and pioneers from that era, like Jonas Mekas and Jaime Davidovich, recall that colourful atmosphere through the 1960s, 70s and 80s, armed with exceptional vintage footage.
