SMALL KITCHENS (27 mins, 2020) observes the physical connections and social contrasts of kitchen work between a Nepali restaurant and a Mexican food cart on the Elmhurst-Jackson Heights border, under the 7 train, in Queens. Shot in the months prior to the coronavirus crisis, Small Kitchens now is a time-capsule of work and consumption, of daily life, in this most global part of NYC before it became the global epicenter of Covid-19, which changed everything. A New Work Grant from the Queens Council on the Arts funded by NYC's Department of Cultural Affairs supported this project.
