DATE
Sun, Oct 14, 2012
TIME
4:00pm - 6:00pm

Brooklyn Boheme is a love letter to a vibrant African American artistic community who resided in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill Brooklyn during the 80′s and 90′s that included Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Branford Marsalis, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, Lorna Simpson, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Vernon Reid, and Toure, just to name a few. Narrated and written by Fort Greene resident and filmmaker/author Nelson George ('Chris Rock Show,' 'Good Hair,' 'The Death of Rhythm and Blues'), this feature-length documentary celebrates “Brooklyn’s equivalent of the Harlem Renaissance." Nelson George will be in attendance for a post-screening conversation that will also include special guest Terence Blanchard, the Grammy-winning artist and Spike Lee film composer, who is both a NOLA native and a one-time "Brooklyn Boheme." Hosted by DJ Soul Sister. Free screening presented as part of the New Orleans Film Festival.
