Sure, it brought back great memories from the festival. But the image quality was amazing and I was intrigued to learn that they filmed it all on a SLR camera. Surely SLR cameras are just for still photography, I thought? After a little investigation, I was surprised to learn tha...

BUSKING THE SYSTEM

Director: Justin Morales.
We pass by them everyday on the subway. Sometimes we drop a dollar. Sometimes we stop and listen. But who are these anonymous musicians that play their hearts out day in and day out for little recognition? BUSKING THE SYSTEM is a documentary that explores the world of subway musicians living and performing in New York City. For in-depth perspective, BUSKING THE SYSTEM focuses in on the very different lives of several subway musicians in New York City. BTS follows three fresh faced musicians from Kansas City, MO, Seattle, WA and Cleveland, OH on their journey to see if they can make it in the New York subway and launch their career – will they discover success or be obscured in failure? Another musician already in New York is seen actually making a name for him self as a subway performer. There is also the familiar darker story of a man who plays strictly as a means for survival. From inspiring idealism to heartbreaking reality, BUSKING THE SYSTEM finally puts a spotlight on the musicians that make up the sounds of the underground.
