Jean and I were permitted to visit The Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective on the other side of Williamsburg. This is a group of people who meet every week to present their films, their ideas and to get support from others.
There were two films presented. The first was the first in a series by Jonathan J. Johnson. It featured artist Eric Diehl. He will be producing one a month for the couple of years. The second was a work in progress by a woman named Lara named “Pinky Square” – the rushes are from a short film that she hopes to expand into a feature. It is the story of how a rape continues to impact on many people’s lives many years after it happens. She shot it on a Bolex from 1941 – it had a great filmic quality.
Another taste of the the New York film community.
