Documentary Block II

Part of the Northside Film Festival. Filmmakers present for the screening.


Green Card, Pilar Rico and David Whitmer, 8 minutes

A film about a song and its author, Mohammad Rahman, a convenience store owner from Bangladesh living in Brooklyn, who writes song lyrics about the immigrant experience.

El Porvenir, Josh Chertoff, Alfredo Alcantara, 14 mintues

El Porvenir is an inside look at the world of Mexican cockfighting, where men and roosters meet at the intersection of life, death, and sport.

Sandorkraut, Emily Lobsenz, 12 minutes

An intimate portrait of Sandor Katz, America’s foremost home fermentation revivalist.

Cada Noche: Every Night (World Premiere), Ian Phillips, 8 minutes

Sazon Perez Restaurant in Brooklyn serves over five-hundred customers, daily. Not including the men who line up outside…every night.

Nelly’s, Danya Abt and Samantha Richardson, 12 minutes

Nelly’s is a portrait of Nelly’s, a family-owned flower shop in the Southside of Williamsburg. Sandwiched between elevated tracks and congested streets, we watch as this tiny oasis brings the local population together in ritual, memory and celebration. Through customer portraits, candid interviews with the store’s owner Nelly, and observational footage captured inside and outside the shop, this nontraditional documentary considers our varied relationship with plants and flowers and how these living things are use to redefine our ever-changing urban landscapes. As we watch the seasons turn, subtle changes are observed in the store and the surrounding neighborhood.
