City of Water Screening This Saturday

The MAS and MWA film City of Water screens this Saturday night in Far Rockaway as part of the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance’s annual benefit. The screening and Q & A discussion is sponsored by HSBC and is free to the public. For details of the screening and to RSVP, visit the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance website. The executive director of Rockaway Waterfront Alliance, Jeanne Dupont, was this year’s winner of the 2008 Yolanda Garcia Community Planner Award. Read more about her and her organization’s work, here.

Two years in the making, City of Water explores the aspirations of public officials, environmentalists, academics, community activists, recreational boaters and everyday New Yorkers for a diverse, vibrant waterfront at a time when the shoreline is changing faster than at any other time in New York’s history. The documentary features interviews with Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff, US Representative Nydia Velazquez, MacArthur Fellow Majora Carter, author Phillip Lopate, Sandy Hook Pilots’ Captain Andrew McGovern and others, and includes footage from Jamaica Bay, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and many other places on the waterfront.
