Starring Duncan Hannah, Debbie Harry [Blondie]. Amazing Colossal Cine-Promotions, New Mandarin Cinema, 150 Elizabeth St, City. Amos Poe is an American New York City-based director and screenwriter, described by The New York Times as a "pioneering indie filmmaker." While the punk-new wave musical revolution was brewing on the Bowery and in downtown New York in 1976 and 1977, a new breed of underground filmmakers were beginning to emerge, whose work reflected the same rough textures and emotional immediacy as punk rock. One of the leading filmmakers of New York's New Wave was Amos Poe, and his feature "Unmade Beds" (1976) was one of the first features from this movement to receive any significant attention outside the underground music and art scene.
