In this classic indie film, seven-year-old Brooklynite Joey Norton flees the scene of a prank, convinced he accidentally killed his older brother. Taking the train to Coney Island, Joey becomes enchanted by arcades, pony rides, and the beach, temporarily forgetting his fugitive status. A beautiful document to childhood fear and curiosity, Little Fugitive was filmed primarily with a concealed, strapped-on camera by cinematographer Errol Morris.
