"Freddy's", the Documentary, to Screen on June 9 and 11. Find Out What's Been Lost

Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn

On June 9th and June 11th the Brooklyn International Film Festival will screen the World Premiere of "Freddy's"—the documentary about the world's best bar which has been confiscated and shuttered forever by the State of New York for Bruce Ratner and Mikhail Prokhorov's billion dollar arena.

Many have heard that Freddy's was taken by eminent domain but may be wondering what the big deal is about this bar, this cultural hub. This film will help you understand what has been lost.

More on the film from Norman Oder here.
