Trailer

Synopsis: 'Up at Lou's Fish' follows the lives of the New York City Fulton Fish Market community, recounting their history as they prepare for relocation to Hunt's Point in the Bronx, after 183 years on South St. The market has always been an insular community; however the filmmakers of 'Up at Lou's Fish' had the privilege of capturing their inter-borough migration. We follow the men and woman -- first, second, third, and forth generation fishmongers -- as they prepare to make the move and share the experiences of their community. In a city that is always changing, the only thing left to do is to tell its stories.
