75 Park: 1 of the 35

Young documentarian Everette Hamlette discovers that his local neighborhood park- 75 Park- is being reconstructed.  Curious as to why all of his childhood memories are being altered; he decides to do his own research on the New York City Parks Department.

Finding more questions than answers, Everette interviews those who grew up in this park near the Hunts Point area of the South Bronx.

He meets people who have similar connections to the neighborhood, interviews friends, neighborhood leaders and also Parks Department employees- seeking both the emotion and the truth of the reconstruction.

Everette started production on this intimate, personal documentary in March 2017.

This journey filled with joy, confusion, and nostalgia is only beginning.
