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.

A large crowd attended the screening of documentary film Up Heartbreak Hill on July 28, 2012. Following the film director/producer Erica Scharf and producer Christina D. King participated in a Q+A moderated by BDC Founder Mike Kamber.
