Director Statement

NYChapters is a short documentary series I developed as a personal project to celebrate the individuals that make NYC the greatest city in the world.
Through discovering stories of everyday people, we begin to realize what the fabric of the city is truly made of, and start to see ourselves reflected in the series' subjects because we are all New Yorkers.
