Rooftop Films is an organization dedicated to showing independent films in unique outdoor locations throughout NYC. While their summer season officially kicks off June 6, tonight's warm-up film will be shown in Ft. Greene Park at 9pm: This Saturday, May 31st, at 9:00pm we will be holding a free screening of the film "At the Death House Door" in Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn.
The film: Pastor Carroll Pickett oversaw 95 executions at a Texas prison, but the experiences changed his views forever. The makers of "Hoop Dreams" examine this contentious issue through the story of this unique anti-death penalty activist. The filmmakers (Steve James & Peter Gilbert) will also be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening.
The film was reviewed in this week's TimeOut Magazine and sounds really interesting. Sorry for the late notice!
NOTE: Raindate is June 6 at 9pm. These thunderstorms are supposed to continue all day, even though the sun is out now.
