No 7-Eleven

Resisting Chain Stores and Corporate Control

7-Eleven? Doesn’t Sound Like New York to Me

People travel to New York City for a variety of reasons, but 7-Eleven isn’t one of them!

When you think of New York City, what comes to mind? Our landmarks like the Empire State Building or the Brooklyn Bridge? Or perhaps some of the iconic films shot here like Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver or Woody Allen’s Manhattan? It’s safe to say what doesn’t come to mind is a 7-Eleven chain store.

That’s the message behind filmmaker Matteo Minasi’s new No 7-Eleven project. The 3o second clip shows two tourists (real tourists visiting NYC from Germany) who take in the iconic sites of New York City when suddenly they run into something unexpected, something very un-New York – a 7-Eleven.
