Synopsis

THE L TRAIN DOC (working title) is an independent feature documentary about the April 2019 closure of New York City's L train line - a line that currently handles about 400,000 passenger trips each weekday.

This film will tell the human stories of residents, business owners, activists, politicians, realtors and others whose lives will be dramatically impacted. Themes will include historical context, climate change, the state of American infrastructure, wealth distribution and the pitfalls of our often fraught political systems.

With principal photography having begun in 2016 and continuing through after the 2019 shutdown, this "time capsule documentary" will pair expectations, efforts and promises with realities.
