    Filmed in Early 2011, Eminent Domain centers on the auto-repair workers of Willets Point, Queens as they fight for their land and rights against redevelopment initiatives taken by the Bloomberg Administration of New York City. As of last June of 2012, Mayor Bloomberg intends to officially redevelop the area, leaving hundreds of workers deprived of their jobs and lifestyles. As Mets Stadium looms over the blighted district, interviewees contemplate the uncertain future in a losing battle as this verite-inspired documentary captures the resilience of an underrepresented people. Premiered at the Anthology Film Archives in New York City.
