Spanning three decades worth of extraordinary work, the EVC Retrospective Series captures moments in New York’s history through the fresh, but unblinking eyes of emerging teen filmmakers. In celebration of Earth Day, EVC presents four short documentaries on environmental issues from recycling to water pollution to the effects of Hurricane Katrina.
Trash Thy Neighbor (1990, 14m)
“A lively, creative presentation on the garbage crisis and the role urban young people can play in combating the problem…” —Safe Planet: The Guide to Environmental Film and Video
NYC and the Hudson River (1994, 14m)
This visually creative work highlights the importance of the Hudson River and examines the causes and consequences of its pollution, through interviews with the Hudson River Keeper and visits to the then newly constructed sewage treatment plant in Harlem.
Still Standing (2006, 11m)
The story of a determined Hurricane Katrina survivor and grandmother who struggles to survive and rebuild what remains of her home without federal emergency assistance, in the midst of a real-estate frenzy that is pushing the poor out of their communities.
Shame On You: That Can Be Reused! (2007, 23m)
A must-see intergenerational documentary that explores environmental justice and recycling in NYC’s low income communities with a focus on the South Bronx.
EVC is proud to partner with the Film Society of Lincoln Center to present the retrospective series, THROUGH OUR EYES: Three Decades of EVC Youth Documentaries. Each Program will be screened twice at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater, with an afternoon screening for school audiences and an evening screening for general audiences. Both screenings will be followed by a question-and-answer session with producers from the short films featured in the programs. To RSVP for the FREE School Screenings or more information on the EVC Retrospective, contact Theresa Navarro at Tnavarro@EVC.org.
