ABOUT


This documentary series captures the flair of North Brooklyn and the work of artists in a creative cinematic style. It’s a fusion of Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown '' and Art21, without the talking heads. Our host is not a TV presenter type who speaks to camera, but more like a character in a narrative film whom we see traveling through Brooklyn, and we hear their inner monologue through their voiceover. The host will seek out artists of North Brooklyn, both old and new, natives and transplants. They also lead us through lesser known places in Brooklyn, where artists have established a stronghold. In real conversations, our host explores each artist’s approach to their work: be it their unique process or the materials they use. The inevitable overlap of work and life conversations lead to a discussion on how life and art intersect, how one informs and inspires the other, and what it means to be an artist living and working in 21st Century New York.
