LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — The award-winning documentary “Battle for Broolyn” will be shown at the CAS Arts Center, 48 Main St. on Saturday, August 4 at 7 p.m. After the screening, filmmakers Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley will discuss the making of the film and answer questions from the audience.
The film follows the story of reluctant activist Daniel Goldstein as he struggles to save his home and community from being demolished to make way for the Atlantic Yards project, a massive plan to build 16 skyscrapers and a basketball arena for the New Jersey Nets, and the densest real estate development in U.S. history. Along the way, he falls in love, gets married and starts a family while living in a vacated building located at the heart of the project site.
This presentation is offered with support from a Media Art Distribution Grant for New York State Artists, a regrant program for the New York State Council on the Arts, Electronic Media and Film, which provides support for the distribution of new works in film, video, sound, new-media and media-installation.
Admission costs $10 for CAS members, $12 for non-members. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating will be first come, first served. Tickets can be purchased in advance. Call 845/436-4227 for more information
