With all the madness of the Tribeca Film Festival fully upon us, I’ve neglected to provide a bit of a mini wrapup of another festival that took place recently in New York, (or Brooklyn, to be exact.) In its fourth year and with a cool venue at the Brooklyn Lyceum in Park Slope, the Brooklyn Underground impressed with a lean, eclectic group of features, docs, shorts and a really happening Saturday night party with free vodka and classic dance tunes spun by J Yamin. Some of Jeff’s favorites were Dena DeCola and Karin Wandner’s film, “Five More Minutes“, which he describes as “captivating, incredibly moving short about grief,” and Heather Courtney ‘s “Letters From The Other Side,” a “moving documentary about families torn apart by US/Mexico immigration policy.” I also (as did a sold out audience) really enjoy Jeremy Mack ‘s documentary, “High Score,” which follows Portlander Bill Carlton as he attempts to break the 80 million world record on the arcade classic Missle Command by attempting to play the game for fifty-six hours straight.
