It's A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
the award-winning documentary The Vanishing City
The Vanishing City is an important and relevant documentary, and a must-see for all New Yorkers. Told through the eyes of tenants, city planners, business owners, scholars, and politicians, The Vanishing City exposes
the real politic behind the alarming disappearance of New York’s
beloved neighborhoods, the truth about its finance-dominated economy,
and the myth of “inevitable change.” Artfully documented through
interviews, hearings, demonstrations, and archival footage, the film
takes a sober look at the city’s “luxury” policies and high-end
development, the power role of the elite, and accusations of corruption
surrounding land use and rezoning. www.vanishingcity.com
The film will be followed by a Q&A with the directors: Jen Senko and Fiore DeRosa.
