Lights, Camera, Brooklyn!


Film festivals are popping up like popcorn these days so it’s no surprise if you’ve got a little fest fatigue at this point. But before you go entirely numb, consider the Brooklyn International Film Festival, a cinematic competition that brings directorial talents from all over the world to New York. Tonight’s opening night film, Able Danger, is from Brooklyn native Paul Krik and was shot at the café bookstore Vox Pop. A tale of conspiracy, intrigue, and star-crossed romance, the film adds a new twist to an old formula by wedding the 9/11 Truth movement to classic film noir. An after party and concert follows.
