Alfred G. Evans is in his fifties, on disability, and lives with his mother in public housing. Across the street from his building, there’s a small strip of grass in the shadow of a highway onramp that he calls his canvas. Evans spends his days picking up everyday objects from around his neighborhood to create mini golf courses, right next to the entrance to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. This short film, Tiger Hoods, by Jack D'Isidoro and Sandra Lopez-Monsalve, is a look into Evans’s life and his quirky hobby.
