synopsis
As waves of change engulf Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the Peter Pan Bakery remains the same. This popular neighborhood institution has been slinging coffee and old-fashioned donuts for over 60 years, and is a place where old and new clientele mingle for breakfast and conversation. As one 76-year-old local put it: "What's beautiful about this place is that it's half the people who grew up here their whole life and then you have the younger people coming into the neighborhood." This hopeful portrait paints a picture of a small business that has vowed to stay put, even as the neighborhood and city change around it.



about the director
Keif Roberts graduated from SUNY Stony Brook and was a screenwriter and producer before adding directing, editing and cinematography to his repertoire. He first knew he wanted to work in film when he saw Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" in a theater.
Peter Haas is a Brooklyn-based director and editor whose first celluloid love was "Godzilla." Since age 9, he's been chasing monsters and men, camera in hand. Through his films, Peter strives to unlock the experience of "ecstatic cinema" -- a viewing experience that challenges, delights, and sweeps up the audience in equal measures.
