Pleasant Plains Movie Night on Friday, July 20th — Will Feature Two Local Documentaries

District Bridges is hosting a panel discussion with two local documentary filmmakers whose films examine issues of gentrification in Washington, DC. this Friday. The event is in partnership with Howard University and the featured filmmakers.

The first movie was filmed in the 1970s and is Brick by Brick. Brick by Brick is by Writer, Director, and Producer Shirikiana Aina of Sankofa Video, Books and Cafe. The second film What Happened 2 Chocolate City is focused on current dynamics and is in the final stages of production (donations to get it over the finish line are happily accepted online). Free popcorn will be provided by District Bridge’s partners and volunteers of Encounter Church.

District Bridges is also seeking volunteer help for the event.
