TONIGHT: Film in Fort Greene Park

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.
