"PERSONA" SPECIAL SCREENING

Frederick Wiseman, a true story hunter, finds, in the deeply multicultural community of Jackson Heights (New York), a neighborhood that is undergoing an identity crisis. On the one hand, the economic threat of gentrification gradually pushes the inhabitants and the small businesses out of the neighborhood. On the other hand, the population does not cease to celebrate their diversity and different backgrounds, as a way of cultural affirmation and also subsistence, while seeking to be more integrated into the American society.
