Documentary filmmaker Dan Hendrick is raising funds for his new feature-length film Jamaica Bay Lives!, a documentary highlighting the problems affecting the estuary. He hopes to chronicle the long history of neglect and underinvestment of this wildlife refuge and the recent efforts to transform the bay into a “world class” harbor estuary. He has raised more than $11,000 online and is hosting a fundraiser/house party in Long Island City tomorrow evening with Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. If you’re interested in attending the party, email JamaicaBayLives@gmail.com for more information.
