Head over to Chelsea next Monday, March 24th, for the first of three FREE programs of short films that Rooftop Films will be presenting within the lovely halls of Chelsea Market. The screening is free and open to all and we will also be serving complimentary New York cheeses (compliments of Chelsea Market Baskets), free wines, organic farm foods and chili popcorn (courtesy of The Green Table restaurant), and free kosher delicatessan snacks (courtesy of Friedman's Delicatessan). The screening will be preceded by a live performance by Drew and the Medicinal Pen.
As delicious as all those treats are, the best part of Monday's screening will--of course--be the films. We'll be showing a collection of some of our favorite New York documentaries from the last several years, including works by The Neistat Brothers, Charlie Ahearn, Lila Place, Caz Nozkowsi (and the Internets Celebrities), The DB, Carmen Vidal Balanzat, Vipal Monga, Greg King, Noah Lerner and Mike Novak. You'll see New York at dawn, travel to Harlem to meet a former playground legend, head to the Bronx with an African MC to visit the birthplace of hip-hop, ride the subway with an unabashed expressionistic dancer, and when it's all over you'll even be taught the best way to relieve yourself when you are far from home.
