Welcome To New York
The film is inspired by a court case, the public stages of which have been filmed, broadcast, reported and commented on throughout the media worldwide. Nonetheless, the characters and all the sequences depicting their private lives remain entirely fictional. So reads the caveat in the press notes and trailer for Abel Ferrara's "Welcome To New York," a film inspired by the headlines made by former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was accused in 2011 of sexually assaulting a hotel worker In New York City.

Abel Ferrara and theatrical distribution mix like oil and water. His films always seem to be hard to find on the big screen, usually slotted with a smaller distributor who doesn't expand his films beyond the few screens they manage to snag in New York City and Los Angeles.
