Faith in the Five Boroughs is a documentary film project that focuses on the religious lives of New York City immigrants. Given New York City’s diverse population of immigrants, producers Julia Elliott and Matt Ozug are interviewing people from a variety of countries who practice a range of different faiths.
Faith in the Five Boroughs documents the role that faith and religious communities play in the lives of immigrants and their children. We take you inside New York’s churches, synagogues, mosques, temples and spaces for private prayer. We examine how the city shapes these religious communities and how, in turn, faith shapes the city.
The project is being funded by the Knight Foundation for reporting on religion and American public life. To learn more about the project, visit their website.
