NOVEMBER 2011 at the SALON
Battle for Brooklyn
at the Three Rivers Film Festival
It's time for our annual field trip! We will attend the screening at the Harris Theater downtown (809 Liberty Ave.). A Q&A follows the screening, and after that we go out for drinks with the filmmaker Michael Galinsky.
BATTLE for BROOKLYN is an intensely intimate look at the very public and passionate fight waged by owners and residents facing condemnation of their property to make way for the controversial Atlantic Yards project, a massive plan to build 16 skyscrapers and a basketball arena for the New Jersey Nets in the heart of Brooklyn. Shot over seven years and compiled from almost 500 hours of footage, BATTLE for BROOKLYN is an epic tale of how far people will go to fight for what they believe in.
