Eugene's Valet

USA, 1984 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Jane Chapline

After decades of service to the community, Eugene's Valet in New York is about to close because of rising rents and falling business. We watch its elderly lewish proprietor as he winds down his business, farewells his customers, yells at the landlord and cajoles his black employees. An affectionate portrait of a man the filmmaker sees as a symbol of an era which is regretfully fading.
