Struggling but unapologetically living on her own terms, Inez (Teyana Taylor) is moving from shelter to shelter in mid-1990s New York City. With her 6-year-old son Terry in foster care and unable to leave him again, she kidnaps him so they can build their life together. A Thousand and One (A. V. Rockwell, 2023, 114 mins) tells a deeply American story of a mother and son living for each other in a gentrifying Harlem that is uninterested in the reality of their lives. Winner of the top U.S. Dramatic Prize at Sundance 2023.

This screening is the 2020's installment of our year-long series New York on Film: Decade by Decade, programmed by Jessica Green. The series accompanies the Museum's centennial exhibition, This Is New York: 100 Years of the City in Art and Pop Culture.
