The short documentary Brooklyn Boondoggle screens tonight at Freddy's

The 11-minute documentary Brooklyn Boondoggle, which I described last month, will be screened tonight at 7 pm at Freddy's Bar & Backroom, which is slated to demolished for the Atlantic Yards project.

Though the title signals the film's general posture, it includes some ambivalent voices not heard much in the AY debate.

The screening is part of the Meerkat Media Mixer, which starts at 5 pm. According to the producers, many of the community members interviewed in the film will be there, as well as representatives from organizations involved in the ongoing conflict. The event lasts until 8 pm. There's no charge.
