Brooklyn Boheme

 
 

Brooklyn Boheme is a documentary by Diane Paragas and Nelson George. They explore the “fertile ground of Fort Greene, Brooklyn that gave rise to an African-American arts movement in the late 20th century as vibrant as the Harlem Renaissance. George is an insider in the scene himself, as a distinguished writer (Hip Hop America) and filmmaker (Good Hair).” The Doc includes interview with Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Branford Marsalis, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, Lorna Simpson Vernon Reid and more for a lively celebration of Brooklyn pride.
