Battle for Brooklyn shows, up close and dirty, just how large a role developers play in defining the forms and functions of the urban landscape.” —Spacing Toronto

The critically acclaimed film Battle for Brooklyn is an intimate look at the community fight against the Atlantic Yards megaproject. Filmed over seven years, it follows opposition leader Daniel Goldstein, whose home sits in the way of the proposed basketball arena. Tackling issues of urban planning, eminent domain, community, and the nexus of developers and government, the epic tale will open your eyes and put you on the edge of your seat.
