The Park Slope Food Coop

The Park Slope Food Coop is a documentary on a member-owned grocery store in Brooklyn, NY.  The documentary was produced by Hyenalife, a online journal supporting sustainable life style.

The coop was formed in 1973 with the demands for healthy and affordable food for local community.  Since it’s formation, the store has grown to be the biggest and oldest coop mainly managed by members’ work contributions.

I shot this piece between 2010-2013 and made five episodes, each investigating different themes:

Part One: Introduction

Part Two: Work Share

Part Three: Product Choices

Part Four: Tools For Democratic Process

Part Five: Seed For Change: Community Participation and Outreach
