72 Hours: a Brooklyn Love Story?

A teenager from Brooklyn has a ticket out of the projects and 72 hours to decide if he wants to leave the only life he’s ever known.

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 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 and is currently streaming on Amazon.
