Invisible City

UK, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Fiction)

Director: Mark Jay

Once upon a time there was a place in Europe where poets and hustlers, scholars and shlemiels lived side by side. Now, that place exists only in memory. It might be called the Invisible City because, like countless other places and communities, it has been erased from the map of history. This is the place where I come from". (Mark Jay)
