a feature documentary by diane paragas and nelson george
“The film is both a celebration and elegy for a scene that faded away in the face of real estate pressures and gentrification, the forces that are already working on Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Of course, in the legacy department Fort Greene can claim, among many other things, Mr. Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It,” which may be enough to win right there.”
“Cool, hot. Uptown, Brooklyn—very specifically Fort Greene, depicted as an urban paradise populated by black nerds and the women who have got to have it from them. A revelation! Nelson George, a talented journalist and a producer of that film, has lived in that neighborhood since back in the day and delivers it a love letter in the form of Brooklyn Boheme”
“Told by those who lived there and participated in its artistic community, Brooklyn Boheme presents a gripping story with the voice of authenticity.”
When Brooklyn Was in Vogue -
In Brooklyn Boheme, Spike Lee, Chris Rock and others celebrate the New York City borough’s rich artistic legacy.
The Day: Fort Greene Before Gentrification
“Veteran music critic, author, historian filmmaker, Nelson George, arrived in Fort Greene in 1985, still in his 20s. He’d shown up to live out his own dream in an enclave of Black artists, a collective that would unknowingly inspire thousands, if not millions, including me, to follow in their then-burgeoning footsteps.”
