RADIOMAN is a documentary telling the story of an extraordinary eccentric, a former homeless man whose unparalleled obsession with movies has taken him from sleeping on the streets to becoming a New York City movie legend with over 100 small parts in films to his name.
Now in his early 60s, Radioman (as he is called due to the trademark boombox radio he hangs around his neck) spends his days and nights cycling around the city from one film set to another, hanging out with the cast and crew between takes. The stars, filmmakers, and crew are the closest thing Radioman has to a family, and Radio has gone from being perpetually drunk, sleeping under trains in Penn Station and even once being thrown into Bellevue by the police, to counting amongst his friends celebrities such as George Clooney, Whoopi Goldberg, and Robin Williams.
RADIOMAN is the rags to (no) riches story of a human being full of dreams and contradictions, and of a life full of missed opportunities and unexpected blessings. It’s an ode to the magic of the movies – and to the power of imagination.
