To stand at the very edge of Niagara Falls is to feel the waterâ€™s primal pull. There, where the roaring river drops away at your feet, you can partake in an ageless miracle. Yet the nearby city of Niagara Falls has seen one of the most remarkable declines of any urban center. Where some see total collapse in less than a lifetime, others see a hometown with strong roots and culture. Still others see a landscape worshiped for its divinity over several millennia.
â€œNiagara Fallingâ€ is an artistic investigation, Interviews of several generations are blended with pictorial and historical material to capture the essence of this city. Its path in recent decades is laid bare without judgment.
