After Sandy in Rockaway NYC from David Borenstein on Vimeo.

This Mini-documentary was shot on the afternoon of election day at St. Camillus Church and the surrounding areas in Far Rockaway, Queens.

The lights are on in Manhattan, and Far Rockaway is still dark, cold and isolated. A public health crisis looms ominously over the community as winter temperatures intensify. After being in the field, it's fairly clear that Occupy is the only major outside presence with a long-term commitment to Rockaway Community.

Please consider helping communities affected by Sandy.
