“Pennebaker said people with cameras live peculiar and magical lives.” His black and white photography spans six decades from the 1940s and celebrates the diversity of his native city, New York. The stunning visions serve as a love letter to the Big Apple and its people.

Be it “Happy Days on the beach”, or striking images of people on the fringes of society, Feinstein’s photography is both poetic and empathetic.

Last Stop Coney Island: The Life and Photography of Harold Feinstein tells the story of the man behind the images, and a photographer whose legacy deserves a lot more recognition.

This screening is the UK Premiere for Last Stop Coney Island: The Live and Photography of Harold Feinstein and will take place in the Renoir screen. Come along after the screening for a Q&A with the film's director Andy Dunn.
