Saving Jamaica Bay is a new documentary film about one of the largest open spaces in New York City, with 18,000 acres housing a wildlife refuge, a national park and prime habitat for native and migratory birds, fish, insects, even turtles.
But it has also been a dumping ground for decades – thick with landfills, sewage discharge, airport runways – Jamaica Bay has been host to them all.
Saving Jamaica Bay premieres tonight at the Queens World Film Festival, to a sold-out house (sorry!) at the Museum of the Moving Image. But fear not! Follow them on facebook or twitter for future showings.
