UrbanWorld Film Festival – September 14-18, 2011 New York City – “Brooklyn Boheme” by Nelson George to Open!

We are thrilled to be attending the opening event of this years UrbanWorld film festival, which showcases some of the best urban creative film works in the world.  Our hats off to Executive Producer Gabrielle Glore who has helped to expose some of the most important and unsung works that need to be seen.

This year’s festival is opening with Brooklyn Boheme, a film directed by Diane Paragas and Nelson George.  According to urbanworld.com, the flick is a historical documentary about the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY (and home to Soulhead.com) and features the likes of Spike Lee, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, Chris Rock and many more of the creative forces that have made Brooklyn and Fort Greene, in particular, a leading destination for tourists and culture enthusiasts worldwide!  Please support this film and the entire festival.  Brooklyn Boheme will be shown on Thursday, September 15 at 8:00 PM at the AMC Loews 34th Theatre.

The first five minutes of our feature documentary Brooklyn Boheme gives a first hand account of this vibrant African American artistic community that included the great Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Branford Marsalis, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, Lorna Simpson, Carl Hancock-Rux just to name a few. Narrated and written by Fort Greene resident Nelson George, this documentary celebrates “Brooklyn’s equivalent of the Harlem Renaissance” and follows the rise of a new kind of African American artist, the Brooklyn Boheme.
