In a combination of slow-motion, almost photographic portraits and unsynchronised recordings of interviews and conversations on the streets of New York, Field Niggas is a vibrant, dizzying documentary about the lives of people who are "hungry to be heard" and who live in the shadows – the homeless, the drug addicts, the unwanted. Endowed with poetic grandeur and shot at night at the famous intersection of 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Harlem, the film is a melancholic portrait that frames an empathetic and emotional reflection on race, class and the policing of black bodies.
