Opening September 8, 2006
A Films Philos Release

Featuring a heartbreaking
performance by former
New York City street cart vendor
Ahmad Razvi, MAN PUSH CART
was one of the most praised films
at the 2006 Sundance and New
Directors/New Films Film Festivals and is
one of those rare motion pictures that gets
the heart, soul and spirit of New York City
absolutely right.

MAN PUSH CART tells the story of Ahmad (Razvi)
a former Pakistani rock singer who currently ekes
out a living selling coffee and donuts to morning
commuters from his push cart in Midtown Manhattan.
Supplementing his income by selling bootleg porn DVDs and taking odd jobs, Ahmad
is saving his money to afford a place where he might be able to live with his estranged young son.

Ahmad's is a harsh, often humiliating life, but he carries on with a stoic dignity and sensitivity, determined to find his way in New York City. The dull routine of his life is brightened by two developments: the arrival of a young Spanish woman (Leticia Dolera) who works down the street in a newspaper kiosk; and an offer of assistance from a wealthy fellow Pakistani (Charles Daniel Sandoval), who remembers Ahmad's former life as a rock star.

Beautifully observed, MAN PUSH CART is a subtle and technically accomplished film, wholly original in subject, location and characters. It is a haunting and insightful feature that gives a revealing picture of one of New York's hidden communities and features strong central performances and stunning photography. MAN PUSH CART is written and directed by Ramin Bahrani and is a Noruz Films production.
