Please join us this Thursday at LaunchPad in Crown Heights for a free screening of the recent Bed-Stuy-shot doc Brownstones to Red Dirt, the moving story of a pen pal program that connects kids in Bed Stuy with children of refugees in Sierra Leone. The film has played at fests around the world and premiered locally at the 2010 Brooklyn Int’l Film Festival. Happy to show this one in central BK for a hometown crowd. Trailer here
