"My Brooklyn," Professor Kelly Anderson’s Documentary, to Appear on PBS World
Film and Media Studies Professor Kelly Anderson's documentary My Brooklyn will make its television debut on the night of January 14, on the PBS World series America ReFramed.
My Brooklyn, which won the Audience Award at the 2012 Brooklyn Film Festival, chronicles the city’s effort to remake Downtown Brooklyn and the effects that had on residents and small businesses in the area. My Brooklyn is a collaboration between Anderson and Hunter graduate Allison Lirish Dean (MUP, '11).
This is not the first time Anderson's work has appeared on PBS stations. Her documentary Every Mother's Son, a collaboration with Film and Media Studies Professor Tami Gold, aired on the series POV in 2004. And her dramatic film Shift was televised on several PBS stations in 2000.
My Brooklyn will air on WLIW-21 World on Tuesday, January 14, at 8 pm; Wednesday, January 15, at 12 am, 8 am, and 2 pm; January 18 at 10 pm; and January 19, at 3 am, 9 am and 5 pm.
