BEACH 119 Trailer Available Now 
New Documentary Short Chronicles a Street in the Rockaways in the
Aftermath of Superstorm Sandy 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/14/13 --  The official trailer for
the forthcoming documentary short BEACH 119 is currently available to
view HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2lYdXuGo2E. The poignant
story follows a tribe of survivors from the Rockaway Peninsula in the
aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. When the tides intruded and stripped
this neighborhood of earthly possessions, its residents held tightly
to their faith in humanity. The documentary short has been submitted
for consideration to various 2013 spring film festivals.  
The Beach 119th Street Angels group was founded by Marcie Allen and
Jessica Beutler, who directed the documentary to give these families
a voice during the aftermath of the storm. Since Superstorm Sandy,
Allen and her team have raised over $100,000 in the form of Home
Depot gift certificates that were used to purchase generators,
heaters, kitchen appliances, and cleaning supplies for families in
need, Boston Market Gift Certificates that provided Thanksgiving
meals for 560 people, and other donations including a truck of
Gatorade and Propel product from PepsiCo.  
The documentary short chronicles one street's recovery while
elsewhere everything is back to normal. Just 23.8 miles away from
Manhattan, on Beach 119th Street in The Rockaways, neighbors joined
together to deal with the trauma associated with cherished
possessions lost. The residents were cut off from help with no power,
water, gasoline or heat, for weeks after the storm. The documentary
explores the story of the residents of Beach 119th Street coming
together as a tribe of real life survivors, thankful to those who
answered their pleas for help.  
"I really like the idea of telling the story," said local resident
Cynthia. "Everyone it touched experienced so many levels of emotion.
We were in shock, denial, bewildered, sad, cold, wet, hungry, lost."
