Battle for Brooklyn a huge hit at Hot Docs

Persistence of Vision

Battle for Brooklyn, already an audience favorite, received a standing ovation last weekend at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Watch the footage here.

The film saw two sold out screenings and got rave reviews at Hot Docs, whose website lists Battle for Brooklyn as the fifth most popular film out of 199 films at the festival, as of May 1.


NoLandGrab: You might not get to see photos of the body of Osama bin Laden, but after Atlantic Yards Report's Norman Oder wrote on Tuesday that Battle for Brooklyn received standing ovations "according to the filmmakers," said filmmakers felt compelled, as noted above, to produce the evidence.

In the spirit of full dis-Oder, however, we should note that the film had dropped a few places to 14th most popular as of May 2nd.
