Foreign Parts

Directed by: Verena Paravel & J.P. Sniadecki

“Tucked between the new Citifield baseball stadium and the Van Wyck overpass lies a ramshackle collection of auto-body repair shops and other small businesses, staffed by an extraordinarily multicultural cast of characters. But New York City has other plans: the area has been targeted for development, complete with apartments, malls, and parks, and this commercial shantytown may soon be a memory. Filmmakers Verena Paravel and J.P. Sniadecki have created a revealing and tender portrait of Willets Point, Queens, that captures the many roads the American dream has taken.” – New York Film Festival (Dir: Verena Paravel & J.P. Sniadecki, 2010, 80 min., U.S.)
