Greenwich Village, once a bohemian sanctuary for starving artists and college students who went on to change the world's culture, has turned into a ghoulish hang out for cover bands and Wall Street hipsters unable to recreate something that is lost. NYU is now a real estate company extracting outrageous fees and tuition from students as they take over more and more historic land in the Village. Student debt is at an all-time high while student prostitution and suicide are on the rise.

With a provocative eye and fearless tone, Roger Paradiso's new documentary THE LOST VILLAGE pulls back the curtain on this greedy land grab to discover what the hell happened to the place that gave us Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol, Jack Kerouac, Jimi Hendrix, Lady Gaga, Richard Pryor, Judy Collins, Allen Ginsberg and so many more.

"A gripping portrait of the systemic legalized corporate crime spree devouring not only Greenwich Village but all our major urban landscapes. A potent call to arms." - Kurt Jacobsen, Filmmaker/Author

"The Lost Village is like a detective story in which the case becomes darker and darker as we witness the devastating effects of unchecked greed and capitalism on the city and its people." - Enrrico Wood Lagonigro, Senior Curator, Oaxaca FilmFest
