Crown Heights, Brooklyn is the subject of a new style of filmmaking using one of the most talked about technologies of the year.

Project 2×1 is a documentary shot on Google Glass that explores the Hasidic and West Indian communities in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights. By using Google Glass, the filmmakers were less intrusive than a film crew and were able to get unprecedented access to rituals such as weddings and local barbecues. The documentary was also a collaborative narrative told through the community members’ eyes who were able to wear the device and record from their perspective.

The project’s broader mission is to initiate a global movement combating the “neighborhood anonymity epidemic” and encourage more people to tell the stories of their own neighborhoods. The founders focused on the two largest ethnic groups in the neighborhood as they feel there is still a sense of intolerance even twenty-two years after the Crown Heights riots. It aims to bring these and showcase how using such technology can bring communities closer together and try to combat prejudice.

The project is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. Watch the pitch in the video below:
