"Gangs of New York" is a 2002 film directed by Martin Scorsese, set in the mid-19th century in the Five Points district of New York City. The movie revolves around the historical tensions between Irish and nativist gangs, particularly focusing on the character Amsterdam Vallon, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and Bill the Butcher, played by Daniel Day-Lewis. The Five Points was a neighborhood known for its violent clashes and diverse immigrant population during that period.

While "Gangs of New York" did not win any Academy Awards, it received several nominations. At the 75th Academy Awards in 2003, the film was nominated in multiple categories, including Best Picture, Best Director for Martin Scorsese, and Best Actor in a Leading Role for Daniel Day-Lewis. Despite not winning any Oscars for "Gangs of New York," Martin Scorsese later received critical acclaim and recognition with other projects, eventually winning the Academy Award for Best Director for "The Departed" in 2007.

Dante Ferretti was the production designer for “Gangs of New York.” His work in collaboration with director Martin Scorsese played a crucial role in bringing the gritty and historically immersive world of 19th-century Five Points to life. Ferretti is known for his impressive contribution to various films, and his work on “Gangs of New York” earned him acclaim for capturing the atmosphere and authenticity of that time period.
