Rooftop Films' 2017 Summer Series, sponsored by SundanceTV, presents RAT FILM on Friday, June 2, 2017, at The Old American Can Factory in Gowanus.

Across walls, fences, and alleys, rats not only expose our boundaries of separation but make homes in them. Rat Film is a feature-length documentary that uses the rat—as well as the humans that love them, live with them, and kill them—to explore the history of Baltimore.


"There's never been a rat problem in Baltimore, it's always been a people problem".

 

Also on the bill is COLD VALLEY by Johannes Krell& Florian Fischer. “Cold Valley” describes the work processes in a strip mine where lime is mined and returned to nature in the form of forest liming. The plot constructs an absurd, but authentic cycle that hopes to counteract the irreversible consequences caused with the harvesting of raw materials, for instance. Something that starts in a descriptive way ends in a spherical alternative world that questions our ambivalent relationship to nature.

Beyond Brooklyn

Ski Blandford is back in operation under new management and it is a jewel.

It's Winter and there are lots of families deciding what to do during the time off. How about a Massachusetts ski trip? Ski Blandford is back in operation under new management and it is a jewel.

Village of kids turn out to build giant snowman in Cobble Hill

One of the things we do at South Brooklyn is google search for interesting tidbits about our great neighborhoods. Every once in a while, someplace out in the rest of the world from New York City pops up with something fun. And the fact that this one is from Cobble Hill is pretty cool.
