Thanks to overwhelming demand and dozens of sold out shows, Kelly Anderson’s My Brooklyn is returning to the reRun Theater this March for a third week.

Documenting the redevelopment of Fulton Mall, the film presents a bustling African-American and Caribbean commercial district that – despite its status as the third most profitable shopping area in New York City – is maligned for its inability to appeal to the affluent residents who have come to live around it.

Through its first two weeks at reRun, My Brooklyn has ignited conversation and community interest. People have been squeezed into every corner.

Conversations have spilled out into the hallways and streets -- about gentrification, about what we like about the new Brooklyn and what we miss about the old, about how we can be better neighbors and citizens of our communities, about the Bloomberg legacy and the possibilities offered by the upcoming elections, and about the cultural and artistic value of public spaces like Fulton Mall.

If you’ve already seen the film, bring friends, spread the word, and join us again from March 8 - 14 to keep this dialogue and phenomenon going. And if you haven’t seen the film, we hope you’ll come out to Brooklyn and join our conversation.



As a hundred small businesses are replaced by high rise luxury housing and chain retail, Anderson uncovers the web of global corporations, politicians and secretive public-private partnerships that drive seemingly natural neighborhood change. The film's ultimate question is increasingly relevant on a global scale: who has a right to live in cities and determine their future?




“Anyone who cares about real cities, and real rights to the city, needs to watch My Brooklyn,” says Don Mitchell, a Distinguished Professor of Geography at Syracuse University and the recipient of a MacArthur Genius Award.


This coming spring the film will be at the Oxford Film Festival in Oxford, MS, as well as in a film series in Oakland, CA that explores connections in urban planning between Brooklyn and Oakland.
