Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley's powerful film about eminent domain abuse in New York, Battle for Brooklyn, is starting a weekend-long run tomorrow at the Artisphere Theater in Arlington, Virginia. (Details here.)

My Reason.tv documentary short, The Tragedy of Urban Renewal, will be opening for the film, and I'll be participating in a Q&A after Friday night's screening. I'll be joined by Galinsky and Daniel Goldstein, the protagonist of Battle who fought a seven-year battle to keep his apartment after New York State conspired with developer Forest City Ratner to take it away.

As TBD notes in an article about the screening, Battle is "not just a New York story." As the The Tragedy of Urban Renewal reminds us, it's not a new story either.

Both films will also be playing at the Roxie in San Francisco on January 13th and 19th. (Details here.)
