My short film on stickball, made with Iris Lee and Maya Mumma, will screen Thursday and Friday nights at the Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival. I'm teaching Thursday night, so I'll be attending Friday.
The "Observing Brooklyn; Encountering Change" documentaries series will illuminate a broad range of Brooklyn life including exploring a recently rediscovered century old tunnel beneath Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn stickball players sporting reunion, 1969 family outing in Coney Island, period Brooklyn footage, Brooklyn senior citizens doing some combative reminiscing and several other short Brooklyn films.
The screenings will be held at the Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont Street, in Brooklyn Heights.
Programs begin at 6:00 pm and admission is $5.00. Please call 718-222-4111 for information.
