PITTSBURGH, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Braddock Films is pleased to announce that a retrospective of Tony Buba's films will take place at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10003 from June 8, 2012 to June 12, 2012. Jed Rapfogel, film programmer for Anthology, said, "Anthology is overjoyed to host Buba for this long-overdue retrospective, highlighting a body of work that really has no parallel in American cinema."
"One of the most singular, and egregiously overlooked, filmmakers in the U.S., Tony Buba is a national treasure, the prime representative of the blue-collar, populist, politically committed yet outrageously entertaining American filmmaking movement that's largely missing-in-action." -Anthology Film Archives
John Anderson - New York Times: "The self-reflexive nature of Mr. Buba's work, its political savvy and technical sophistication -- continuing a soundtrack as the image changes, for instance, and the poetic use of working-class imagery -- make Mr. Buba ripe for rediscovery, as does the prescience of his movies: the foreshadowing of the Occupy and Tea Party movements seem unmistakable in 'Lightning Over Braddock,' despite its place and time."
Currently Braddock Films is collaborating with editor Tom Dubensky on three new films: "We Are Alive - The Fight To Save Braddock Hospital"; "Accordion Stories," a musical by Steve Pellegrino; and "Thunder Over Braddock," a sequel to "Lightning Over Braddock."
