Bushwick Homecomings

Friday, September 28, 2007

Bushwick was one of New York's poorest areas in the 1990s, but it's now becoming part of the wave of gentrification sweeping across the city. Stephanie Joshua's new documentary, Bushwick Homecomings, explores how residents of this Brooklyn neighborhood are reacting the rapid changes going on around them and what those changes might mean for their futures.

Bushwick Homecomings is screening at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival. For more infromation, visit the festival website.
