This month, we will screen a rough cut of Zipper by Amy Nicholson. On a small rented lot in Coney Island, Eddie Miranda proudly operates a 38-year old contraption called the Zipper. When the property is sold, Eddie becomes the victim of a power struggle between an opportunistic developer and the City of New York over the future of the famous amusement park. A story about politics, greed, land use and public policy, Zipper chronicles a critical period in Coney Island’s history and examines the impact of economic development on an American icon.
