Directed by Frederick Wiseman (USA, 2015, 190 min.). DCP.
Frederick Wiseman’s 40th documentary, In Jackson Heights, is about the racially and ethnically diverse neighborhood of Jackson Heights in Queens, New York. It won the 2015 New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Non-Fiction Film.
“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
“Immersive and profound. It’s brilliant. Walking out of [the film] perhaps into your own community, everything seems newly electric and life itself becomes both small and endless.”—Matt Prigge, Metro
