JAMAICA, Queens — For the past five years it has been "lights, camera, action" on Jamaica Bay.

A new documentary called "Saving Jamaica Bay" will premier at the Queens World Film Festival on March 17, 2016.

Dan Hendrick is the film's producer and writer. He worked as a reporter in the area and became interested in the bay. He hopes more people will visit the area.

Neighbors have been concerned about the disappearing marshes and threats to the ecosystem.
