Window on Your Present
WINDOW ON YOUR PRESENT is Cinqué Lee's first feature film, written and directed in the late 1980s. The film takes place in a world where color and love do not exist. The people who live in this dreary world have nothing to live for and often end up taking their own lives. However, two unlikely lovers discover that there is something else that is special that exists outside of their horrid world. Lee is no stranger to film, appearing in Jim Jarmusch's MYSTERY TRAIN and COFFEE AND CIGARETTES. Cinqué was also co-writer and co-producer of his brother Spike Lee's CROOKLYN. WINDOW ON YOUR PRESENT remains a time capsule into the No-Wave New York art films of the '80s.
