An only-in-New-York account of Ming, Al, and Antoine Yates, who lived in a social housing apartment in Harlem until news of their dwelling caused a public outcry. On the discovery that Ming was a 500 lbs. pound tiger and Al a seven-foot alligator, their story took on an astonishing dimension.
This unique documentary feature about an eccentric cohabiting set-up reveals an unbelievable (yet entirely characteristic!) New York City story with fittingly distinctive techniques. Ming of Harlem is artist-academic Phillip Warnell’s second collaboration with philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy.
