An ode to Bushwick in all its richness, art, poetry, music, immigration, gentrification and survival.SYNOPSIS
Bushwick, Brooklyn. Listen to the beats. The rhythm of my Bushwick streets. Bushwick Brooklyn is an experimental documentary that mixes fiction, poetry, hip hop and reflections of Modesto Jimenez, a Dominican, gangsta, poet, who drives a gypsy cab and questions the social and political changes affecting the Latin American communities of the neighborhood where he grew up in Bushwick, Brooklyn. An encounter of contrasting opinions about Gentrification between the growing artistic community that is moving in to the area and the Latin American and African American communities that have been living in the neighborhood since the late 1960’s. This documentary is a journey through the memory of the streets of Bushwick during the 90’s when it was thought of as s no man’s land of abandoned buildings, empty lots, drugs and arson until what Bushwick has become today, a hot spot for emerging artists looking for cheep lofts to rent. Establishing art galleries that are remodeling old factories and attracting investment in the area, cafes and fancy restaurants are popping up. The changes in Bushwick are making the neighborhood a better place however who are they making it better for?
