5pm : A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

Go back into Bushwick’s past, with a special screening of “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”. The film is based on an American novel A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith first published in 1943. It relates the coming-of-age story of its main character, Francie Nolan, against a backdrop of tenement life in Brooklyn, New York, at the turn of the 20th century. Characters work at the Castle Braid Factory, located on this very spot at the turn of the century.

“Would you like to know more?” “This is nothing!”

In light of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, we look back at two justified, neatly fought and popularly supported wars from the movies; one that takes place in the future, against an unobjectionable foe, and one that takes place in recording studios, all for the sake of a Presidential candidate and patriotism.
