Screening Series at India Street Mural Project

Print

Join the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition and Moviehouse for Moviehouse on India Street on August 17, August 31, September 8 and September 21. Over four nights the India Street mural will feature projections by filmmakers, animators, and documentarians.

The new-painted mural will literally come alive on September 8 when six local filmmakers Lam Thuy Vo, Joshua Carrero, Sarah Pirozek, Vanara Taing, Nathan Punwar, Hiram Becker, and Chris King present the movies they created to capture the artists– Ali Aschman, Eve Biddle & Josh Frankel, Chris Soria, Joshua Abram Howard, Robert Seng, and Skewville– as they spent the month of June turning a common white wall into a master work of public art.

Each of the wall’s five empty spaces will simultaneously turn into a screen, inviting the audience into the world of the artists. After the screenings, the filmmakers and artists will speak with each other and the audience about the creative process that went into creating the mural and the films.

On August 17, NYC’s funniest and finest animators including Patrick Smith, Catherine Chao and Kieran O’Hare will make animals talk, dolls love, and buildings walk. On August 31, the Bushwick Film Festival shares a selection of their best films from each of the fest’s first three years. Then on September 21, the series wraps up with two decidedly Brooklyn documentaries: Uncertain Industry and Up on the Roof.

It’s all projected on the mural at the end of India Street in a free interactive environment with a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline. The India Street Mural Project is the kickoff project for North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (NbPac) and presented with Council Member David Yassky. It is part of a greater urban revitalization for India Street, the waterfront, and the surrounding neighborhood.
