Screening At Brooklyn Museum of Art Thursday Aug 1.

Posted by Tony Buba (Creator)

A brief update. After screening "We Are Alive" at the Pumphouse, Athens Film Festival and Arizona Film Festival, we took all of the audiences suggestions and trimmed 12 minutes out of the film.  In June, "We Are Alive" received the Studs Terkel prize for Media and Journalism from the Working Class Studies Association. If you are in NYC on August 1st please come to the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Thank you LaToya for making this happen.
