    An fiercely aggressive young woman, a domineering bully with a secret past, and a conflicted young man struggle to discover the price of friendship and self-respect in a violent public high school. This film was created by students at Brooklyn Community Arts and Media High School (BCAM), who used discussion and improv exercises to explore their relationships with loyalty, self-control and violence.

          • The Queen Of Halloween

            Every year on October 31st, crowds gather in the street in front of 313 Clinton Avenue, home of Janna Kennedy (aka "The Halloween Lady"), for the legendary theatrical extravaganza known as Halloween 313. Now in its 19th year, this free, Broadway-quality show for all ages runs continuous performances throughout the evening, drawing an attendance of more than 5,000 neighbors, visitors, and trick-or-treaters (the show coincides with the Clinton Hill Halloween Walk). The increasingly-elaborate show is made possible by the collaborative efforts of a dedicated and talented group of volunteers, including professional actors, writers, producers, designers and artists from around Clinton Hill and Fort Greene who pool their skills and give up their weekends to make each year's show better than the last, all for the love of their community and the Halloween spirit. What began as a collection of tombstone decorations in the front yard of 313 Clinton years ago (which still go on display every year) has evolved into a Brooklyn institution beloved by generations of local kids. Halloween 313 Theatrical is a self-funded, not-for-profit community group that depends on donations , t-shirt sales, and a partnership with the Society for Clinton Hill for all operating costs. Please visit our Timeline or our Twitter page for updated information on where to get a t-shirt. See behind the scenes at 2013's show is "20,000 Screams Under the Sea: A Steampunk Adventure", and Janna's perspective on the evolution of an exciting neighborhood tradition.

            • Abigail DeVille's Flair for the Dramatic | ART21 "New York Close Up"

              How do you get your audience to touch the art? Artist Abigail DeVille constructs the set for a premiere performance of Adrienne Kennedy's play "She Talks to Beethoven" (1989) at the JACK arts center in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Theater director Charlotte Brathwaite describes the play’s dreamlike style and time-bending narrative: an American expatriate in 1960’s Ghana "converses" with Beethoven in early 1800s Vienna. DeVille draws parallels between the play’s temporal cross-cutting and theoretical physics—specifically the concept of wormholes, or passageways in the space-time continuum—as well as the hidden histories and absences that mark the African American experience. To create the sculptural set titled "Intersection" (2014), DeVille and Brathwaite drill holes into wooden flats, linking them together to form two concentric ellipses. Acquiring cast-off materials through the Recycled Artist in Residency program in Philadelphia, DeVille describes what attracts her to the discarded: "Material already has so much information trapped inside of it. It has whatever it’s chemically made up of, its physical and chemical properties, whoever owned it, loved it, and threw it away...What can you improve on that?" In a performance set to Beethoven's "Fidelio," the actors move fluidly through the dramatically lit set, sharing the sculptural space with an equally mobile audience. "You can hold an audience captive," marvels DeVille, who is fascinated by the possibilities a theatrical context can provide. The film also documents DeVille at work in a residency at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Features the installations "New York at Dawn" (2010), "Dark Star" (2010), "Dark Day" (2012), "'If I don't think I'm sinking, look at what a hole I'm in'" (2012), "Street Life: A Vortex" (2012), and "XXXXXXX" (2013); and includes music by Ludwig van Beethoven—"Egmont, Op. 84"; "Symphony No 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55"; "Coriolan Overture, Op. 62"; "Fidelio, Op. 72"—performed by the Musopen Symphony. Abigail DeVille (b. 1981, New York, New York, USA) lives and works in the Bronx, New York.
