The Braddock Chronicles
Twelve short works by Tony Buba, the director of LIGHTNING OVER BRADDOCK, chronicling the rise and fall of Braddock, PA. Includes J. ROY: NEW AND USED FURNITURE, about an indefatiguable entrepreneur who has failed at a dozen businesses; SWEET SAL, an engaging portrait of part-time hustler; the hilarious WASHING WALLS WITH MRS G., a hilarious film starring Buba’s grandmother; and THE MILL HUNK HERALD, a trip inside a Steel Valley workers’ magazine which looks like raw material for a Bruce Springsteen song.
