The Meerkat Media Collective’s award winning short film about Brooklyn’s controversial Atlantic Yards development – the site of Barclays Center.
We hope that this film can be used as a tool to raise awareness and incite discussion about local development, gentrification, and our agency to create and define our own communities.
This 12 minute film serves as an introduction to the issue, so we did our best to keep it simple, entertaining and direct.
