The Healing Gardens of New York
Producer, Alexandra Isles, will introduce this beautiful and inspiring documentary and after the showing
invite audience discussion.

The Healing Gardens of New York tells the stories of the lives and communities transformed by gardens
and green spaces created in response to crime, neglect, poverty and urban decay. In cities dominated by glass and concrete, the film takes an in depth look at how gardens can be a platform for social change and an opportunity to develop new skills and transform lives.

Award winning documentaries by Alexandra Isles have been shown at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (Washington, DC), Museum of Modern Art (NY), numerous film festivals including the Human
Rights Watch and Margaret Mead Film Festivals, and all have aired on PBS.
