MEGAMALL: Money, Power and Politics in the Age of Sprawl – DVD and Home video license

$29.99

The story kicks off when the biggest mall developer in the Northeast comes to the smallest county in New York to build its biggest mall yet on a toxic dump, one mile from the filmmakers’ homes. That move sparked a citizen uprising that lasted almost 20 years. It also inspired MEGAMALL, the filmmakers’ quest to understand the dramatic events unfolding right in their backyards. This feature-length documentary investigates the origins of one of the country’s biggest shopping malls, and its impact on the suburban community of Rockland County, New York. Featured throughout the film is provocative commentary from leading urban critics and writers James Howard Kunstler (The Geography of Nowhere), Roberta Brandes-Gratz (Malling the Northeast – New York Times Magazine), and real estate economist Donovan Rypkema. MEGAMALL is the story of ordinary Americans who confront the overwhelming forces that are changing the face of our nation — and our world.
