Trailer Watch: Frederick Wiseman’s In Jackson Heights

It’s easy to take Frederick Wiseman for granted when he churns out nonfiction masterpieces at such a hair raising clip, but his latest, In Jackson Heights, is not to be missed. At once a paean and an elegy to the Queens neighborhood, Jackson Heights tracks the gentrification of the historically multicultural area, and the grassroots resistance among its immigrant and queer communities. It opens at New York’s Film Forum on November 4.
