The definitive documentary on the infamous libation called the Nutcracker, Nutcracker Inc. delves into the history of the potent potion while exploring the neighborhood that made it a phenomenon.
Nutcracker Inc. is a left-of-center feature documentary film set in the New York neighborhood of Washington Heights that tells the story of the illicit and underground street drink and its relationship to the community. The film not only paints the story of the Nutcracker, but also presents a portrait of Washington Heights, its recent history and the diversity of its residents.
(Nutcracker Inc was awarded a 2013 creative grant from the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), sponsored in part by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation and the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation.)
