The # 7 Train: An Immigrant Journey
Every day 500,000 people from 117 different countries ride a subway that runs from Flushing to Times Square, going through Queens, the most culturally diverse region in the United States. This documentary follows four immigrant passengers: a Korean who works in Harlem, two Otavalen street vendors who work near Chinatown, and a gay Pakistani sari salesman on Fifth Avenue. Their lives and their conflicted relationships with the city and its other residents are juxtaposed with the subway they take each day to Manhattan and their dreams for the future.
