Narrated and written by Fort Greene resident Nelson George, this feature length documentary celebrates "Brooklyn's equivalent of the Harlem Renaissance" and follows the rise of a new kind of African American artist, the Brooklyn Boheme. This community of artists made this part of Brooklyn a mecca for young black and Latinos, where they were bonded by great ambition, good times and jamming parties. Brooklyn Boheme is a chronicle of that magical time as a flowering of great art made by black Americans. The documentary is a funny, joyous look at a time and place with charismatic storytellers and dazzling photography telling this amazing story. Inspiring, dynamic and colorful, Brooklyn Boheme will make you wish, you too, would have been invited to the party.

      • Brooklyn Bohéme


        from Diane Paragas / Added

        Brooklyn Bohéme is a historical documentary and a personal essay by co-director Nelson George about a Brooklyn, New York neighborhood that was home base to an extraordinary community of black and Hispanic artists in the '80s and '90s. Filmmaker Spike Lee, comic Chris Rock, actress Rosie Perez, rap star Talib Kweli, visual artist Lorna Simpson, jazzman Branford Marsalis, rock guitarist Vernon Reid, and poet/rocker Saul Williams are just a sampling of the talent that resided in the area. George, who has lived in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill areas since 1985, has been a participant/observer as a critic, author, investor, collaborator and filmmaker. Brooklyn Boheme' is very much a collection of old friends getting in beautiful Fort Greene Park, in lovely brownstone homes and comfy cafes talking about why this black bohemian community grew, prospered, and finally got dispersed over the course of twenty-five years and a couple of generations of artists. This is a feature length documentary, co-directed by Diane Paragas, that unlocks a little known piece of New York City cultural history. Directed by Nelson George & Diane Paragas Written by Nelson George Cinematography by Diane Paragas & Francisco Aliwalas Edited by Diane Paragas, TREVZ Produced by Nicole Nelch, Nelson George, Diane Paragas MUSIC; Poogie Bell "Dreaming in Fort Greene" IN POST-PRODUCTION

            • Death At A Funeral | Main Title


              from Grant Okita / Added

              Following the thin red line, the peaks and valleys, the final heartbeats on an EKG finally flat lining. Life and death. And where one journey has ended, another begins as we follow that same red line through a stylized world of a line drawn Los Angeles. As we meander and backtrack through iconic LA landmarks and traffic, we finally arrive at the house where the funeral and chaos and hilarity are about to begin.
