Award-winning documentary "Vito After"
available on DVD at


"Brooklyn Matters," June 9th @ 7 p.m.,
P.S. United Methodist Church,
6th Avenue & 8th Street
The Park Slope Greens are hosting a free screening of
Isabel Hill's Atlantic Yards documentary
"Brooklyn Matters"
this coming Monday evening.

If you haven't yet seen this film, it's a highly illuminating look at what New York Magazine reporter Chris Smith has called the "chilling" "sophisticated political campaign" behind the Atlantic Yards project. It's especially relevant given the pro-Atlantic Yards "rally" staged by Forest City Ratner at Borough Hall this past Thursday -- the latest installment in the campaign to ram the project through. Running Time: 55 minutes

Friday, June 13th
7:30 p.m.
Spoke the Hub
295 Douglass Street (between 3rd & 4th Avenues)
$5 Suggested Donation
For info and reservations, please call (718) 408-3234 or visit

Filmmaker Alison Prete and "New York Matters"
"Lavender Lake: Brooklyn's Gowanus Canal."

Alison made the film in 2000, when development interest in the Gowanus Canal corridor was just beginning to pick up - and the flushing tunnel was undergoing repairs after years and years of inactivity. The film looks at what the promise of a new environment means to those who live and work in the Gowanus area, and portrays a community dreaming and battling over a new and suddenly desirable urban landscape - a battle that continues today.
