The Collector of Bedford Street
Authors: Alice Elliot - Director and Producer
The Collector of Bedford Street is a unique portrait of Larry Selman, filmmaker Alice Elliott's 60-year-old neighbor with a developmental disability. A community activist and fundraiser, Larry raises thousands of dollars for charity every year while survives on the poverty line. He lives in a rent stabilized apartment under the care of his uncle, who lives nearby.
However, as his uncle ages Larry's future becomes uncertain. Because of Larry's 20 years of service to his neighborhood, the community wanted to ensure his safety and well-being. After researching their options, Larry's community created a supplemental needs adult trust fund through the United Jewish Appeal. It was the first time a group outside of an individual's family did this.
