"My Brooklyn" is a documentary examining Director Kelly Anderson’s personal journey as a Brooklyn “gentrifier,” and her efforts to understand the forces reshaping her neighborhood along lines of race and class. At the heart of the film is the Fulton Mall and the controversial plans to remake the shopping area.  You can read an interview with the director and producer in the Huffington Post.  The documentary recently won the Audience Award at the Brooklyn Film Festival, and we're very pleased to be screening it here.

A wine and cheese reception precedes the talk at 6:30 p.m, and the film will screen at 7pm.  Seating is limited to 40 people.  Tickets will be given out 30 minutes before the event.
