Teaser from BETWEEN NEIGHBORHOODS

BETWEEN NEIGHBORHOODS (81mins., 2018) contemplates the interborough and international present and past of Queens at once.  Working in split screen, the documentary diptych moves between archival and original footage to see the histories that orbit the Unisphere, between the era of Robert Moses, who built the giant stainless-steel globe at the last New York World's Fair and that of Donald Trump, whose attempt to wall off the United States from the world mirrors the walling off of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park from those who have arrived from around the world to globalize Queens.  BETWEEN NEIGHBORHOODS has exhibited transatlantically, as a film and as an installation, in festivals and universitie, where it has been the subject of symposiums. It won the Founders Choice Award for Documentary at the Queens World Film Festival and it is nominated for Best Documentary at the Kew Gardens Film Festival where it screens next in the Queens Museum on August 4th. If you are interested renting or purchasing or arranging a screening, here's where to begin.
