HiNeighborMFA

“Hi, Neighbor”, the prequel to the documentary trilogy about the Cape Verdean community in Fox Point(“Some Kind of Funny Porto Rican?:”…., Atlantic Portals, Working the Boats: Masters of the Craft), is an experimental/short film about a little girl who lost her home to urban renewal, and asks her wealthy neighbor, ‘Why?” It is a classic story of American immigrants and what happens when society displaces them.

“Hi, Neighbor” had its world premiere at the 2011 Cape Verdean International Film Festival and was awarded Jury Selection (first prize), in the 2012 Black Maria Film Festival.
