Douglas Paulson sez:

What's the deal with all those empty lots in East Flatbush? Join us Tuesday, June 1, at Anthology Film Archives for the world premiere of the documentary "The Good, The Bad, & The Empty."

CUP Teaching Artist Douglas Paulson and students from the BCCP's afterschool program at Walt Whitman Middle School looked deep into the emptiness and investigated hidden uses, ownership patterns, and alternate futures for the lots right near their school. They interviewed a community development consultant, an affordable housing advocate, a real estate expert, and asked property owners some tough questions to uncover the surprisingly full lives of empty lots.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with empty lot experts moderated by the documentary crew. This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to info@anothercupdevelopment.org so there won't be any empty spots.
