Getting to know your neighbors takes on an entirely different meaning in the new short documentary 2×1. The film, which was shot in part using Google Glass, captures the daily activities, rituals and routines of members of Crown Heights’ Hasidic and West Indian communities, literally through the eyes of the people who participated. The film offers an intimate look at these two very distinct cultures, highlighting both their similarities and differences–watch the trailer here to get an idea. Its filmmakers will screen the doc, which derives its title from the two mile by one mile area in Crown Heights where it was shot, for the first time this Sunday at Mister Rogers at 8pm. A Q&A with the director, Hannah Roodman, and her team, as well as some of the film’s subjects, will follow. It’s free, and the doors open at 7pm.
