So excited to premiere my new film “Big Mike Takes Lunch.” I don’t ask for much, but I’d be so happy if you guys checked it out, threw it a like, a share, whatever you feel comfortable with. Very proud of this one and I want the world to learn the story of Big Mike and Astor Place Hair. #LinkInBio —> "Big Mike Takes Lunch” by filmmaker Nicolas Heller (better known to some as New York Nico) is a documentary that captures a day in the life of Michael Saviello, manager of 40 years for the iconic East Village barber shop, Astor Place Hairstylists. For the past year, Mike has devoted his 45-minute lunch break to something he hasn’t done since Highschool… Painting. Follow Mike as he takes you on a journey through his shop full of characters and the storage unit he’s turned into his personal art studio, adding another uniquely New York charm to one of The city’s best kept secrets.
In conjunction with the screening of the film, Big Mike will be having his first ever art show at Astor Place Hairstylists on November 17th at 8:30pm. RSVP to BigMikeTakesLunch@gmail.com if you want to attend.
