Brooklyn moves too fast to possibly be documented in its entirety, but one resident is taking a stab at recording a little bit of its history through the oral accounts of locals.
The Bushwick Diaries is directed and produced by Kweighbaye Kotee, a nine-year Bushwick resident and founder of the Bushwick Film Festival.
Kotee is seeking funding to help with the post-production costs of her documentary about Bushwick, as told by its populace.
A promotional video on her Kickstarter shows clips of interviews, portraits of area residents who speak to the changes the neighborhood is experiencing.
Bushwick is fleeting, Bushwick is in a pivotal moment, Bushwick has many layers, Bushwick is worried about displacement.
Contributors to Kotee’s Kickstarter will receive a host of gifts ranging from a Bushwick Diaries swag bag to a special edition snapback hat depending on donation.
