72 Hours: a Brooklyn Love Story?

72 Hours a Brooklyn Love Story? is a feature film about love and coming-of-age that I wrote and directed. The project was developed with Reel Works, an organization that mentors youth filmmakers in Brooklyn, and was inspired by a short documentary film by one of the students there.

Shooting took place in neighborhoods as far apart as Brownsville and Ft. Greene, Bushwick and Flatbush – traversing the great distances that many teens cover on a daily basis. 72 Hours made its premiere at the LA Film Festival in 2016. The film was distributed by Freestyle Media and is currently airing on Starz and Revolt TV.
