AFS Presents: IN JACKSON HEIGHTS

December 9, 2015 @ 8:03 pm

DIRECTED BY FREDERICK WISEMAN

USA, 2015, DCP, 190 min

The latest masterpiece by documentary film legend Frederick Wiseman (TITTICUT FOLLIES, LA DANSE, BOXING GYM) is a portrait of America that doesn’t make the news. 167 languages are spoken in the Queens, New York neighborhood of Jackson Heights, which contains the country’s most diverse zip code. A stunning observational film about people with the most widely divergent traditions and beliefs living side by side, IN JACKSON HEIGHTS is the definitive film about American assimilation in the year 2015. In this pivotal moment for immigration policy, Wiseman’s sensitive look at melting pot America is a must-see.
