Home screening at BAM

Thursday, March 01, 2007


A friend just sent me an email about this screening tonight at BAM. At 7:30 they will be screening Home, a promising-sounding documentary about an immigrant’s experiences in Brooklyn. Sadly, I am hopping on a plan out to LA at 6:30 tonight and will have to miss it. If I were around, I’d definitely check out. Here’s the description from BAM’s site:
Brooklyn filmmaker Dawn Scibilia had been shooting landscapes of New York City but hadn’t committed to making a feature film until she met Irish immigrant Alan Cooke. Home follows Cooke as he finds his way through New York in both a tribute to the everlasting beauty of the city, and a harsh acknowledgment of the difficulties of living here. Into this tapestry, Scibilia weaves off-the-cuff interviews with numerous New York luminaries including Woody Allen, Frank McCourt, Liam Neeson, Susan Sarandon, Rosie Perez, and many more.
There's also a Q&A with film-maker Dawn Scibilia afterwards.
