This is a portrait of Jackson Heights, a condensed area of Queens, New York, that has become home for a high concentration of Latin American immigrants. This is an effort to document this space, in this specific moment in time, and to make it visible. As an immigrant myself, I was struck by the physical manifestation of a city landscape that has been slowly modified and reconstructed to resemble another. The neighborhood with its streets and textures and sounds becomes a mirror not just of another place but also of another time, and of a past that is built upon collective memory. (Alexandra Cuesta)

This film is screened together with At Sea.
