Founded in 2011, The Bronx Documentary Center is a new non-profit space for photography, film, and new media located at 614 Courtlandt Avenue and 151st street in the South Bronx. We’re thrilled to be partnering with them this year on a number of screening events.
We kicked off the partnership this summer with an evening screening of Up Heartbreak Hill on July 28. Director/producer Erica Scharf and producer Christina King were in attendance for a Q&A.
We’ll continue this September with two POV films, one from the pipeline and one from the archive:
