Description
 
My Brooklyn follows director Kelly Anderson's journey, as a
Brooklyn gentrifier, to understand the forces reshaping her
neighborhood. The film documents the redevelopment of Fulton Mall, a
bustling African-American and Caribbean commercial district that -
despite its status as the third most profitable shopping area in New
York City - is maligned for its inability to appeal to the affluent
residents who have come to live around it. As a hundred small businesses
are replaced by high rise luxury housing and chain retail, Anderson
uncovers the web of global corporations, politicians and secretive
public-private partnerships that drive seemingly natural neighborhood
change. The film's ultimate question is increasingly relevant on a
global scale: who has a right to live in cities and determine their
future?
