Project 2x1:Documentary about Hasidic/West Indian communities in CH

http://project2x1.com/

Shot in part with Google Glass, Project 2×1 is a short documentary film and grassroots initiative exploring the distinct cultures of the Hasidic and West Indian communities living side by side in the 2 mile x 1 mile area of Crown Heights.

Though these communities have coexisted in the neighborhood for nearly 70 years, they rarely interact. Today, nearly 23 years after the 1991 CrownHeights race riots, some residual tensions persist along with strains of anti-Semitic and racist sentiment, and popular news media continue to cast Crown Heights as a neighborhood of division and violence, particularly as the pressures of gentrification sweep through the community.
