GARDEN ROLL BOUNCE PARKING LOT

Documentary
Pop culture and land-use practices converge in Brooklyn, where a Bangladeshi immigrant family kept a thriving urban garden. A brother and sister share their memories of that garden, which was recently leveled in order to make a parking space for their father's livery car. Prompted by the filmmaker, they recall the year that the overhead lattice support for the garden was woven out of 35mm film.
