The Domino Effect is a feature length documentary film that explores the process
of real estate development in New York City and digs deep to uncover the complex
networks of banks, developers, politicians, and non-profit organizations that
shape our cities. During the last decade, the North Brooklyn communities of
Williamsburg and Greenpoint, have experienced the negative impacts of excessive
luxury development and gentrification, more than any other neighborhood in New
York. Told through the voices of longtime residents, the film conveys the
personal impact of real estate development in their community while also
shedding light on issues encountered by residents of cities across the country.
