New Documentary to Capture Coney Island Change

The YouTube clip below is a trailer for a documentary being made about Coney Island by four NYU film students. It was produced in the last couple of days, because it includes footage from last Friday's "Save Coney Island" rally at City Hall. They write, "this film will document what might be the last season for amusement park rides at Coney Island before the area becomes gentrified." Definitely worth viewing, especially as it includes Coney Island demolition porn. We know of at least one other filmmaker doing a documentary on the current situation, as we ran into him on a very cold day (when Coney Island did not seem a very year-round place) back in February.
