The Braddock Chronicles
Directed by Tony Buba
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.
