All Eyes and Ears
All Eyes and Ears offers a timely look into the delicate and intricate diplomatic relationship between the U.S. and China, as seen from the perspective of Jon Huntsman, United States Ambassador to China, and his family — in particular, his adopted Chinese daughter, Gracie.
Columbia-educated writer and director Vanessa Hope’s documentary illuminates the evolving alliance between the nations, but also civil rights and social justice — recurring themes for Hope — and Gracie’s personal experience living in China as a Chinese-American. A 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Official Selection, visit the All Eyes and Ears website for more information on upcoming public screenings.

In a city with as many juice bars as Starbucks, some options stand out. Tiny Empire is a “one size doesn’t fit all” juice bar, operating under the philosophy that in a big city, you can’t overlook the small stuff. Tiny Empire packs big flavor and big nutrition into their products, employing raw, organic, unpasteurized juices (and snacks!) made in small batches.
Currently located in Brooklyn, Tiny Empire is poised to make a splash in Manhattan with the soon-to-be-opened flagship store in SoHo. When you combine the highest quality ingredients with the convenience of online ordering and delivery, healthy eating for on-the-go New Yorkers just got that much more doable.
