AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in Sydney’s Inner West, Crystal Street is a semi-fictionalized documentary inspired by the New Realism of the Italian cinema of the Fifties, drawing especially from The Bicycle Thief. Taking place over a week it is the story of two men: Steve, an amphetamine junkie and dealer and Frank, an old Greek man who sells hot dogs. Both live in a small block of flats part owned by the council. Steve struggles to make enough money, dealing to keep his addiction in check and pay off Danny the Man, the bikie who supplies him with drugs. Frank lives alone and survives by selling hot dogs outside the Oxford Tavern strip club. He lives for his daughter, soccer, hotdogs and tsipro, his liquid sun.'(Publication summary)
