Brooklyn kiddos collectively filmed, cut and produced a film about smaller Brooklyn kiddos:
In New York City’s changing Lower East Side, a group of older Puerto Rican women are brought together with a group of inner city youths to create an original play from the stories of their lives. Over a twenty-week period, the participants confront stereotypes and examine their own histories, exploring themes of immigration, relationships, coming of age and growing older. Woven together, their stories take on new meaning, first as they are spoken across generations, and later when they are performed in a sold-out show.
I am impressed 12 filmmakers with 12 visions can come together to produce one film and am ready to have my heart melt all over the place by the finished product. Last showing during the Latino Film Festival is tomorrow and tickets are here.
