Storyline

In an ever-changing corner of New York City, a longtime resident realizes she no longer recognizes the neighborhood she calls home. Facing an uncertain future, she is confronted by a young man with a direct link to her past. She is forced to ask: when is it right to hold on to what's past, and when is it time to let go? Shot on 16mm film on location on the Lower East Side. With the closing of the city's last film lab, Off Track Betty is one of the last films ever to be processed in NYC.

A Beautiful and Profoundly Moving Short Narrative
18 March 2018 | by lioneljeffriesSee all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing Off Track Betty during Queens World Film Festival 2018 and was awed by its beautiful, deeply moving story about a big-hearted young man finding his father's past love amongst a New York City which is hardly recognizable to its longest-time storekeepers. The lead performances are near perfect, they're full of charm and an unprecedented amount of humanity which really captivated me while watching. Likewise, this is a gorgeously shot film that is as much a tribute to New York City in all its constant evolution as it is a beautiful story that all people can relate to. I fully recommend this beautiful film to anyone who can find it, especially to those who love New York.
