In Jackson Heights

Friday, Jan 15 - Sunday, Feb 28, 2016

Dir. Frederick Wiseman. 2015, 190 mins. Digital projection. In English, Spanish, and Arabic with English subtitles. The teeming diversity of Jackson Heights, and Queens, is the subject of Frederick Wiseman’s acclaimed new film, one of the year’s best documentaries. As with the finest of his films, Wiseman has created a kaleidoscopic and novelistic view of his subject, here showing the many ways that people form smaller communities within a larger, chaotic world. Manohla Dargis in The New York Times called it a thrilling, transporting love letter from Frederick Wiseman to New York and its multi-everything glory.”
