Based on the play by acclaimed writer Miguel Pinero, Short Eyes is a brutal and powerful look at life in Manhattan's infamous detention center, "The Tombs".
Tensions erupt when Clark, an accused child molester, joins the prison ranks. Universally detested by his fellow inmates for committing the most heinous crime imaginable, Clark becomes a catalyst for anger and violence that breeds behind bars and sets off a horrifying chain of events. A groundbreaking film and pop culture phenomenon, Short Eyes was directed by award-winner Robert M. Young (Extremities, Ballad Of Gregorio Cortez) and features a score and cameo by music legend Curtis Mayfield (Superfly).
