A heart broken filmmaker navigates an unfamiliar city, an international art fair and his own emotional turmoil in this “poignant,” “incredibly entertaining” and “wonderfully magical” documentary. “An evocative personal journey and study of globalization and loneliness,” Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window is produced and directed by Andrew Hevia and produced and edited by Carlos Rivera

The film was supported by a Fulbright U.S. Student Research Fellowship and was a 2017 participant in the IFP Filmmaker Labs. It is executive produced by Bonnie Chan Woo and Dennis Scholl.

Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window had its World Premiere at SXSW on March 9, 2019 in the Visions Section, where it was nominated for the Adam Yauch Hörnblowér Award. The film made its International Premiere at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen and premiered in New York City at BAMcinemaFest.

Leave The Bus Through The Broken Window [is] the most original and fascinating documentary you’ll see all year.
— Alan Ng, Film Threat
This is the sort of hidden gem that I’m going to be recommending to friends as it makes its way through the various festivals. Highly recommended.
— Steve Kopian, Unseen Films
An at once wryly humorous and emotionally naked record of alienation in the age of globalization, Leave The Bus Through The Broken Window turns an artist’s personal crisis into a brilliantly meta self-portrait.
— BAMcinemaFest
A mysterious, tragicomic documentary-within-a-documentary... personal and heartbreaking.
— Kristen Yoonsoo Kim, ArtForum
Incredibly entertaining... deeply personal and sometimes horribly comedic..
— Charles Barfield, The Playlist
...a wonderfully magical film...
— Matt Delman, Hammer to Nail
In an upbeat and deeply witty take on the otherwise so introverted autofiction genre, [Hevia] embarks on an adventure in the neon-lit metropolis, where the art elite meets on rooftop terraces and in small clubs. His budget is exactly zero, but his ingenuity completely makes up for it.
— Mads Mikkelson, CPH:DOX
Part travelogue, part essay film, and, in one surprising moment, part karaoke musical, Hevia’s doc is on-the-fly filmmaking that mirrors the all-encompassing attitude of its maker.
— Erik Luers, Filmmaker Magazine
