“My Brooklyn” by Kelly Anderson, is a powerful documentary film about Brooklyn, NY, and the systemic gentrification and displacement of the community.
This is the second film in BISC’s five-film miniseries which focuses on land, our cultural identity and community. These five films (Daughters of the Dust, My Brooklyn, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Holding Ground, and Gaining Ground) all serve in BISC’s popular education platform to address common themes and issues of land as sacred space; cultural identity, migration, and community; and gentrification, resistance and just transition in Birmingham black and brown communities, and tying our lived experiences in with other marginalized peoples in global sites of resistance.
There is a suggested donation, for those who can afford it, of $3-$8.
