New documentary chronicles the varied artists who flocked to Fort Greene and Clinton Hill sections of Brooklyn in the late 1980s, early 1990s.
The first five minutes from writer and filmmaker Nelson George’s new film has been released. A feature-length documentary, Brooklyn Boheme is a collaborative effort between the New York-born George and Diane Paragus.
Shadow and Act confirms that the movie is currently in post-production. The Fort Greene/Clinton Hill-centered documentary is described as one that “gives a first-hand account of this vibrant African-American artistic community that includes the great Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Branford Marsalis, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, Lorna Simpson just to name a few, and follows the rise of a new kind of African-American artist, the "Brooklyn Boheme."
