‚ÄčIn the waning days of New York City's lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic, an unusually high number of candidates ran for city council in the 2021 local primary elections. In the 26th Council District in Queens, the most diverse borough and most diverse county in America, 15 candidates, the most of any district, representing a wide range of cultures and points of view, appeared on the Democratic ballot. The race came as Western Queens became known as a progressive hotbed with the rise of socialist elected officials such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the local fight against Amazon's plans for a headquarters in the district. This film follows the campaigns in the last few weeks of the most crowded race. The film screened at the Queens World Film Festival in 2022. You can watch it (for free) below.
