Official Selection of Socially Relevant Film Festival NY
“The Forgotten Farragut,” was created through the “Portraits of New York City: Small Grants Challenge” and sponsored by Human Services Council of New York in partnership with Measure of America with funding provided by The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
With staggering data featured in the documentary such as median household income in Farragut being $20,169 and in DUMBO $204,205, BCS recognizes the large income disparity its clients are living in every day. In response to such numbers, in 2016, BCS Farragut Cornerstone Community Center was launched at Farragut Houses. It is a partnership with the New York City Housing Authority and enables BCS to bring vital resources and support to the residents of Farragut Houses.
More information about the film’s premier date and time will be made available through the Socially Relevant Film Festival of New York‘s website soon. We hope you will join us for the premier of this important documentary.
