Gut Renovation [Brooklyn Reconstructed]

Gut Renovation [Brooklyn Reconstructed]

81 minutes, color, USA, 2012
Special Guest: Filmmaker Su Friedrich, others
The screening will be followed by a post-screening discussion and then a birthday party for Su Friedrich! All are welcome.

GUT RENOVATION tells the inside story of the rezoning, demolition and repurposing of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Friedrich details the heart-rending loss of a thriving community of working class residents and artists, as well as the loss of many beautiful old industrial buildings that accommodated hundreds of small businesses, manufacturers, and artists’ studios, including the eccentric communal loft which was her home for twenty years.

Along the way, Friedrich slyly skewers the city planners, ad men, developers, architects and the new tenants they attract with their offers of tax-free luxury living “with a bohemian twist.”

World Premiere: Brooklyn Film Festival, June 2012. Winner of the Audience Award

Camera, writing, editing, sound editing and color correction: Su Friedrich
Editing and writing consultants: Cathy Quinlan, Janet Baus
Sound mix: Bill Seery/Mercer Media
