Film Screening of "Blissville" and a Conversation with Filmmaker Hank Linhart

Location: Sunnyside
Registration: Not required

Filmmaker Hank Linhart has created a documentary tribute to a remote corner of Queens near Greenpoint, which was formerly known by the remarkable name Blissville. The film explores the character of the town, a residential/industrial neighborhood with a rich mix of ethnicities and many new immigrants. The image of a peaceful town, as the name conjures, gives way to a dynamic and resilient area increasingly threatened by development and gentrification. A Q & A will follow the screening.
