Little Fugitive (81 mins)

After their mother leaves them home alone in New York for the weekend, 7-year-old Joey is tricked into thinking he’s killed his older brother with an air rifle. He runs away to the funfair at Coney Island and becomes immersed in the transporting world of rides, light and spectacle.

This striking example of low-budget, American vérité seems entirely distinct from the bulk of 1950s American cinema, and it's naturalistic, free-form approach was credited by François Truffaut as a direct inspiration for the French New Wave.
