A documentary film by Anthony Donovan. 64 min.
At one time the Lower East Side (of NYC) was the most densely populated and diverse spot on the planet.... meet a few of the people behind 10 of the local East Village institutions both carrying on this history, and joining hands to face our current challenges. It's about community, local, personal. It's another tiny attempt to lower the need for vast military spending around the globe, decreasing some of the fear and prejudice around religions. It's about standing up to hate and supporting our greatest strength, our diversity. A living, shining example in the world.
