The popular Filmwax series, BROOKLYN RECONSTRUCTED, continues with J.L. Arson's striking documentary, LAST SUMMER AT CONEY ISLAND, which explores the changing times in the birthplace of amusement.
Coney Island is known throughout the world as the birthplace of the hot dog, the roller coaster and even popular culture. But Coney Island is not what it used to be and the area has lingered for years as a specter of its former magnificence. Now, after years of false starts, change is coming. This film profiles a legendary amusement park at the precipice of transformation; a time and place where every summer feels like the last.
