IFP & reRun Theater



April 19th - 25th

Written, Photographed, & Edited by Su Friedrich

A documentary of small changes evolves into an historical record of New York. The resulting film is an essayistic requiem for a neighborhood and an entire way of life; it also provides a case study of the rapid gentrification of our cities.


In 1989, together with a group of female friends, Su Friedrich rented and renovated an old loft in Williamsburg, an unassuming working-class district of Brooklyn. In 2005 this former industrial zone was designated a residential area and the factories, manufacturers and artists' lofts were priced out by property speculators lured by tax breaks. Friedrich spent five years documenting with her camera the changes in the area between East River and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. She shows the demolition of industrial buildings and the construction of trendy new apartments for wealthy clients, watching old tenants leave and new inhabitants arrive. As she keeps meticulous record of developments, the extent and speed of the upheaval becomes clear. Her own tenancy agreement expires too and so her documentary images and trenchant commentary become the tools of her growing anger.

“[A] sarcastic documentary polemic about the gentrification of a Brooklyn neighborhood…Ms. Friedrich is fighting mad. She is a provocateur.”–Stephen Holden, The New York Times


In March, the New York Times covered the film with an extensive article and a video tour with director Su Friedrich. Read/watch it here



“Su Friedrich…has made the most salient and personal film about Brooklyn’s ever-changing face since Hal Ashby’s ‘The Landlord’ appeared in theaters some 43 years ago." -Brandon Harris, Filmmaker Magazine
