I will be showing my documentary short, FILLMORE PLACE, along with a selection from our work-in-progress on small businesses in South Williamsburg, as part of an event on displacement in Williamsburg tomorrow night. I invite NY-based folk to come to whatever portion they can make, especially if you have ever lived or worked in Williamsburg.

The films address all kinds of displacement. The panel will focus on artist displacement, and is part of the Displacement show at greenbelt. greenbelt is a new 8-unit green condo building in Williamsburg that will house Center for Performance Research, an affordable arts space. It should be a provocative and interesting evening on many levels.
