Planet Brooklyn
16 September 2011 | by (BROOKLYN, NY) – See all my reviews

For a young filmmaker living in Brooklyn, I felt this film in my soul. This summer my partner and I shot a documentary called How Sweet It Is highlighting the essence of Brooklyn but also taking a look at the changes currently occurring in Brooklyn because of gentrification and the new Nets stadium. This film inspired me to continue our journey and really capture the movement and community that is currently happening amongst young artist and professionals in Brooklyn.

In this film, Nelson George and Diane Paragas really captured the essence that was the Fort Greene artist movement in the 80s and 90s. To see people like Spike Lee, Talib Kweli, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, Erykah Badu, Branford Marsalis and Chris Rock apart of this community really showed the type of organic talent and how genuine that time was.

The cinematography was beautiful just BEAUTIFUL! It felt so warm and BROOKLYN!

This is the MUST see film of the year for every young artist around the world!
