Sax, Cantor, Riff - Shortfilm from 'Subway Stories'

Back in 1997, HBO held a contest asking New Yorkers to submit true stories that happened on the subways. The result: Filmmakers adapted a collection of 10 vignettes showcasing an ensemble of familiar faces and dramatizing stories ranging from compassion and love; to reflections on violence and loss. "Sax, Cantor, Riff" was written and directed by Julie Dash ("Daughters of the Dust" 1991) -- one of the chosen segments for "Subway Stories: Tales From the Underground."
