The Great American Cooking Story Episode 6 Features Area Restaurants

January 14, 2016

Here’s a documentary that will be of interest to many that features Jeremy Gifford of DC Reynolds here in Park View and Paul Ruppert of the Petworth Citizen. Both talk about their restaurants and their commitment to serving and being a part of the community. The documentary is part of a series by Clara Ritger. You can learn more about Ritger’s work, and see other episodes from the series here.

Film Short “The Wait” Screening Tonight as Part of DC Shorts Film Festival.

September 11, 2015

This is cool. You may remember that local artist Nekisha Durrett painted a new mural at Mothership this past year, which was completed shortly before the restaurant closed. In conjunction with the mural was a documentary by Lorie Shaull which documented the creation of the mural, explores gentrification, and features the surrounding Park View neighborhood to boot.  This past spring, Lorie Shaull entered her film The Wait: A Mural by Nekisha Durrett into the DC Shorts Film Festival 2015.

The film was selected and will screen today, September 11th, at 9:30 p.m. at Landmark E Street Cinemas as one of the films in Showcase6. It will screen again on September 13 at 4:30 p.m. and September 16th at 500 p.m. You can learn more about the DC Shorts Film Festival here.

Below is The Wait for those who want to watch it again.
