Battle For Brooklyn
Sep 25

(Michael Galinsky, Suki Hawley, 2010, USA, DigiBeta, 93 min)

Tuesday, Sep 25 at 07:00PM
On the eve of the opening of the new Nets arena in Brooklyn, we bring back Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley's Battle for Brooklyn, a David and Goliath story about urban development in Brooklyn's Prospect Heights.

At once public and intimate, Battle for Brooklyn chronicles eight years in the life of Daniel Goldstein, the graphic designer-turned activist whose refusal to leave his apartment became the last obstacle to mega-developer Forest City Ratner's Atlantic Yards project. Director Michael Galinsky turns an unflinching eye on the struggle for community rights against corporate interest, looking for the story behind Mayor Bloomberg's vocal support for the project and examining the city's questionable legal rationale for replacing homes with a sports arena.

"Feisty but fairly reported as urgent as any Hollywood thriller." New York Daily News
