Description

Dollar vans, weed delivery, A.I. sex dolls… A series of recent short documentaries from the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective take us deep into New York, around the world and back again reflecting the international roots of our city.

FLATBUSH! FLATBUSH!

In the heart of Brooklyn, a fleet of semi-legal minibuses race to pick up and drop off passengers.

IT'S COMING!

MIZUKO
Directed by Kira Dane and Katelyn Rebelo
In Japanese, there’s a specific word for an unborn life. Mizuko, which means “water child,” is used to refer to both miscarried and aborted pregnancies. In addition to this word, there’s a ritual for grief that allows women to metaphorically return their water children to the sea. Narrated by a Japanese American woman, Mizuko tells the story of her abortion in the US against the backdrop of this cultural context.

An experimental mixed media documentary following various 'heartbreak experiences' as told through Brooklyn residents as the memorabilia leftover from their expired human relationships.

A Burlesque dancer Redbone becomes a voice for diversity.
 
THE SERVICE

THE SERVICE charts a day in the life of Myles Wily, a veteran turned weed delivery man during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City in 2020.
 
A SHIP FROM GUANTÁNAMO
Directed by Veena Rao
Imprisoned without charges for almost 20 years, an artist finds solace and joy from making intricate ship models out of found materials.

TWO SUNSETS
Directed by Adam Golfer
