Starlite is a feature length documentary about Brooklyn's Starlite Lounge which is described by the owners as the oldest, and perhaps the country's oldest black-owned non-discriminating bar.
Starlite explores the intersections of race, sexuality, and gentrification through the documentation of a historic and cultural institution on the verge of disappearance. The closing of the Starlite Lounge means not only the loss of a neighborhood meeting place. For patrons city-wide the Starlite is a family, a legacy, a safe haven, and a living history of the LGBTQ community.
Starlite is in pre post-production
