Documentary focuses on the gentrification of Fulton Mall

A new documentary is currently in the works, which tackles the issues of gentrification and city planning in Downtown Brooklyn. Written and directed by Kelly Anderson and Allison Lirish Dean, the film, called My Brooklyn: The Battle for the Soul of a City, focuses on how city planning policy affects the changes we see in neighborhoods and commercial centers like the Fulton Mall. One of the primary questions of the film is, “Whose values get reflected in city policy and why?”

The BK Buzz talked to Allison Lirish Dean, writer, researcher and producer, about how she got interested in the topic of gentrification and city planning and what she hopes those who watch the film will take from it.

The film is near completion but Anderson and Dean are asking for donations to help fund the final editing stages. If you are interested in helping, visit their Kickstarter page. And don’t forget to check out the trailer for the film.
