Comedy, Directed by Michael Goldburg
A comedy about Benny Boon, a NYC con man having a mid-life crisis who wants to “go legit.” Instead, he stumbles into posing as a producer making a movie called “Hooker Mom” to pay off gangsters trying to kill him. Co-written by award-winning screenwriter, Brooklyn-raised Dave Chan.
Documentary, Directed by Chuka Umunna
Roy and Jack Vanasco are two brothers who enlisted and fought during WW2. At the end of 2016, they close their appliance repair store — All Appliance Refrigerator Company — after 61 years. The film was shot entirely in Clinton Hill, where the director also lives.
