 Synopsis

Josh & Benny Safdie (DADDY LONGLEGS, THE PLEASURE OF BEING ROBBED), Alex Kalman (creator of myblocknyc.com), and Factory 25 present this feature-length program of found moments from the everyday—films that showcase the wonder, beauty, sadness, love, aggression and magic that goes unnoticed on the hectic streets of NYC and elsewhere.

"Buttons are sublime. See them."
- Scott Maccaulay, Filmmaker Magazine

"Buttons feels almost like a moving photo album with its portraits of subway musicians, children in strollers, police officers and bored street vendors."
- The New York Times
