Update #75: Battle launches June 17th in NYC
Battle for Brooklyn via Kickstarter
We are writing to you today to let you know that after 8 years of work, David, Suki, and I will launch the theatrical run of "Battle for Brooklyn" on June 17th. We have had several festival screenings and the response has been far beyond our wildest expectations (a few press quotes below). Everyone from politicians, to activists, to project proponents have praised the film for it's fairness and powerful storytelling.
Your Support got us this far and now we need just one small push to get this film rolling out nationwide.
Well-attended screenings of "Battle for Brooklyn" here in NYC during that opening weekend of June 17, 18 and 19 at Cinema Village will ensure that the film gets booked all around the country.
If it screens around the country at large, new audiences will learn of and be inspired by the principled and tenacious fight the community waged against the Atlantic Yards project.
We are writing to ask you to come to one of the Cinema Village screenings. (Cinema Village is at 22 E. 12th St., btw Unversity Pl. and 5th Ave.)
Most Important: Please strongly encourage your sphere of contacts to see the film at Cinema Village on June 17, 18 or 19.
The times are not up on their site yet but the film will run at 1,3,5,7, and 9:15.
