Coney Island USA documentary

We are Harlem Pictures, makers of the documentary "Coney Island USA. Shot mostly in Cinéma vérité with interviews.
The central character is Elizabeth Graybill, born in Coney Island , currently living in Columbus, Georgia.

During the production, something really amazing was happening as we were filming her reunite with members of her family and how the moments of change marked their lives and have continued...during last year Elizabeth has turned her life around, building a new foundation for herself and her family.
Lots of amazing developments have happened since we last shot and interviewed the family.
And this new chapter still needs to be told to finish this inspiring and transformative documentary...and we NEED your help in order to make that happen.

We created this page to raise money for travel expenses other final production costs. The final productions dates are set for the week for October 11-15th in Columbus, GA. Members of the Graybill family will be coming from Omaha to gather for the family reunion. Lots of interviews will be conducted and life as it unravels will create the unforgettable Cinéma vérité moments.
