KSR IRL: Saturday, 8/13 Kelly Anderson & Allison Lirish Dean’s My Brooklyn documentary will hold an afternoon of speakers, clips, and discussion @ the BMW Guggenheim Lab in Manhattan. There will also be Brooklyn-based artisans and vendors selling their creations at the Lab. The event is free and open to the public.
From the lab: “In My Brooklyn, director Kelly Anderson documents her personal journey as a Brooklyn gentrifier who tries to understand the forces behind the rapid reshaping of her neighborhood along lines of race and class. Anderson watches as an explosion of luxury housing and chain store development spurs bitter conflict over who has a right to live where and to determine the neighborhood’s future. While to some gentrification is about revitalizing the city, to others it is about erasing the eclectic urban fabric, economic and racial diversity, creative alternative culture, and unique local economies that drew them to Brooklyn in the first place.”
