Tiny: The Life of Erin Blackwell


TINY: The Life of Erin Blackwell
 
Official Selection: BAM Cinemafest, AFI Docs.

Erin “Tiny” Blackwell was the thirteen year old prostitute who was the focus of the bombshell documentary Streetwise which was nominated for an Academy Award. 30 years after, acclaimed photographer and filmmakers Mary Ellen Mark and Martin Bell revisit their subject, now a mother of nine. This is a stunning longitudinal study in the vein of the Up Series. Director: Mary Ellen Mark, Martin Bell.
