HAVERSTRAW -- A 1-hour documentary film (in post-production)
Co-produced by Stone Lantern Films and Turnstone Productions.
Directed by Sarah Mondale, Vera Aronow and Roger Grange.
HAVERSTRAW is the story of a multi-ethnic American community in the throes of change. The film begins in the 1990s when a developer chooses Haverstraw –a poor, mostly Hispanic village once known as the “brickmaking capital of the world” -- as the testing ground for an ambitious plan to transform the Hudson Valley into a showcase for
sensible waterfront development. Taking advantage of its stunning location at the widest point of the Hudson River, Ginsburg Development Corporation aims to create a tourist mecca with a riverfront promenade, a port for cruise ships, a children’s museum, restaurants and condos all at the water’s edge.
