It was a great evening on November 14, 2018 at the Cinépolis theaters in Chelsea,  where the indie film Last Stop Coney Island: The Life and Photography of Harold Feinstein premiered before a sell-out crowd as part of DOC NYC’s ninth year! The audience included long-time fans of Feinstein’s photography, former students, family members and those just discovering him thanks to the great push DOC NYC gave to this film!

This fantastic review from Sheri Linden of  The Hollywood Reporter captured a slice of the evening’s mood:

Last Stop would be a welcome tribute at any time, but it’s especially bracing when today’s constant deluge of visual images can’t help but dilute the impact of photography. Dunn’s film is fully attuned to the vibrancy and tenderness and sense of possibility in Feinstein’s photos, to the life in them.

Stay tuned to get information on future screenings as the film now begins to travel to other film festivals worldwide!  We’re so grateful to Andy Dunn for taking the initiative to create such a wonderful testament to Harold’s legacy and to all those who participated on camera and off!
