A Moment with Rooftop Films

Rooftop Films

We attended the first Rooftop Films screening of the season in Gowanus this weekend and have to say there's nothing nicer than watching some films al fresco on a great summer night in Gowanus. In introducing the program, Mark Rosenberg, Rooftop's director, noted that "Gowanus is changing rapdily, but not all of it is good." He was referring to the threat that artists and other creative enterprises will face as development pressure increases in the neighborhood. In any case, you can check out the upcoming schedule here. The offering on Saturday (6/23) called Losers and Winners, about workers from China dismantling a huge factory in Germany so that it can be shipped to China and reassembled looks absolutely fascinating.
