“Delivered Vacant, an eight-year chronicle of housing gentrification in Hoboken. An intricate and deeply human portrait of the city and the people that lived there, the film went on to play at the New York Film Festival, Sundance, and the San Francisco Film Festival where it garnered a Golden Gate Award.
Naples on the Hudson to some, a square mile of prime real estate to others. From boom in the 80s to bust in the 90s, this dramatically engrossing documentary features a real-life cast of long-time residents, newly arrived yuppies, tenant organizers, real estate developers, street people & immigrants from around the world including the wackiest Mayor in America.
Hailed by Vincent Canby of The New York Times as “a fine, rich film … an urban epic.”
