Washington, D.C. Premiere Twelve years in the making, Megamall documents the origins of the massive Palisades Center Mall and its impact on the suburban community of West Nyack, New York,18 miles north of Manhattan. Through archival footage of town hall meetings and interviews with residents, activists, environmental advocates and mall officials, viewers are given a rare chance to witness the process and rationale of mall building. The film is also an illustration of the choices we make as a society and the true cost of these choices. Produced, directed and written by Vera Aronow, Roger Grange and Sarah Mondale.
Discussion with filmmakers Vera Aronow, Roger Grange and Sarah Mondale follows screening.
