Brooklyn Reconstructed - LEMONADE : DETROIT and MY BROOKLYN
Saturday, January 12, 2013 FROM 4:45-7:00 PM (PST)

BROAKLYN FILM & THEATER CO. & TOP TEN SOCIAL present

LEMONADE: DETROIT

Bad news is sensational. It's the stuff of prime time exposes and gotcha news hours. People are attracted to bad news for the same reason they slow down past car accidents and watch horror movies -- It's impossible to turn away. But instead of sensationalizing blight, the film Lemonade: Detroit sensationalizes hope. It is about the disarming resilience of a city that can no longer rely on a single industry for its livelihood. Rather than glamorizing ruin porn, Lemonade: Detroit makes hope, optimism, and positivity as intriguing to watch as a train wreck.

MY BROOKLYN, a recent Audience Award winner at the Brooklyn Film Festival, chronicles how city government and corporate interests joined forces to remake Downtown Brooklyn, displacing small businesses and long-time residents. The film focuses on the policies and politics reshaping the Fulton Mall, one of the most successful and most maligned shopping destinations in New York City. It also investigates the historical roots of this contemporary urban makeover, reaching as far back as far as the Great Depression, and expanding beyond Downtown to examine the origins of change in neighborhoods like Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, and Bed-Stuy.
Director: Kelly Anderson/Allison Lirish Dean
