Tuesday Night Docs–In Jackson Heights

Join us on November 24th for our first ever Tuesday Night Doc Club! We’ll be watching Frederick Wiseman’s In Jackson Heights at the Northwest Film Forum.

Frederick Wiseman’s 40th documentary IN JACKSON HEIGHTS is about the racially and ethnically diverse neighborhood of Jackson Heights in Queens, New York.

 

In Jackson Heights is bursting with interesting characters, moving anecdotes, and—most inspirationally—scenes of impassioned activists fighting to preserve the culture and history of their neighborhood.

–A.A. Dowd, A.V. Club

A perfectly panoramic portrait of the new America. It’s a feel-good movie…about America being what it’s supposed to be. Wryly funny…most of the film is set within a heady ethnic mélange, where all the food looks delicious and the sense of energy and intelligence are acute. A very entertaining movie – should be earning Wiseman a Pulitzer Prize. But an Oscar would be OK.

–John Anderson, Indiewire

 

Afterwards we’ll grab a beer at Elysian Brewery (1221 E Pike St). Don’t miss it.
