Between Neighborhoods Film Screening: A newly released documentary by Filmmaker Seth Fein @ Queens Historical Society | New York | United States

(Seth Fein, dir. 81 mins) sees the interborough and international histories of imperialism and immigration that orbit the Unisphere in Queens since the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. The spit-screen documentary travels between present and past, original and archival footage, to contemplate how the imperial legacies of Robert Moses’s so-called public works and Washington’s Third World foreign policies hover over Queens today to those who come from across the globe to live in Queens. It has exhibited in England and the United States and won the Founders Choice Award for Documentary at the Queens World Film Festival in 2017.

Seth Fein is a Brooklyn-born audiovisual historian and filmmaker who lives in Jackson Heights, Queens, where he operates Seven Local Film. He has taught at Yale, Columbia, and Barnard and currently teaches Screen Studies in Brooklyn College’s Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema.
