“The Lost Village” won the Best Documentary Award earlier this month at the New York City International Film Festival and will be shown at the Manhattan Film Festival Wednesday, April 26th at Cinema Village Theatre 5 p.m. in its first Greenwich Village screening.
“Great indie film which talks about the forces decimating the Village–un-affordable housing, unsustainable small businesses, and the intensely evil and predatory influence of NYU. Eye-opening and a pleasure to watch!”
– Katherine Slawinski
“Poignant and sometimes unnerving. The Lost Village is a microcosm of the big picture. [Filmmaker Roger] Paradiso is not afraid to speak his mind. He is willing, on your behalf, to tell it like it is! ”
– Laura Warfield, Musician
“This is a razor sharp investigation of the slow evisceration of Greenwich Village. It has a lot to say about the cannibalistic nature of capitalism in this country, and where we are headed. Very timely and well done.”
– Steve Gorelick, NJ Film Commission
