This film will be screened as a part of these events.

New York City’s SoHo neighborhood has transformed from a once warehouse artist district in the 1960s into a now commercialized upscale hub of fashion, retail, and food. Through footage, photos, and archival material from neighborhood residents, SoHo native Yukie Ohta articulates the importance of archiving SoHo’s past to better reflect its future. The film is told through Ohta’s experiences growing up in SoHo and starting a memory project that preserves the history of the neighborhood and acts as a model for other parts of the city experiencing gentrification.
