A great show in store for you today.  Suki Hawley, director of Battle for Brooklyn, is here with us to talk about her acclaimed film.  It’s the story of one neighborhood’s battle to fight big business from taking their homes.

“…The pundits who continue to say they don’t understand what the protesters behind Occupy Wall Street want should look at Battle for Brooklyn, the award-winning documentary about the Atlantic Yards that was released this summer.  The film was released before the Wall Street protests began, but the story it tells is a strong summary of the crony capitalism that sparked the OWS movement.”  — Michael O’Keeffe, New York Daily News
