Bata-Ville: We Are Not Afraid of the Future

Bata-Ville is a feature-length documentary by Karen Guthrie and Nina Pope. This fascinating and charming film is part road trip documentary, part ideological exploration. At Rooftop Films we never imagined a bus-trip across Europe with a group of retired shoe-factory workers would be so enjoyable.

Thursday, September 14, 2006
8:30PM- Live Music by PG6 | 9PM: Showtime
On the roof of Downtown Community Television (DCTV) 87 Lafayette,
Tribeca, Manhattan
Tickets are $8, and available online or at the door of the event

Downtown Locals

Downtown Locals, a feature-length documentary by Rory and Robin Muir, is a funny yet poignant glimpse underground, into the lives of six disparate New York City subway buskers. Downtown Locals illustrates brilliantly the microcosm of the true underground by drawing us into the lives of a few of New York City's less celebrated characters.

Friday, September 16, 2006
On the lawn at Automotive High School, 50 Bedford Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
8:30PM: Live Music by subway musicians from the film | 9PM: Showtime
Tickets $8 online or at the door.

ROOFTOP FILMS Presents
DARK TOONS AND MEMBERS OF FUGAZI AND CALIFONE (LIVE!)
Rooftop Films is known for our impressive combinations of spectacular venues, fabulous films, and great music, and this show is sure to be a smash. Atop a gorgeously gritty, rust-covered roof in East Williamsburg, we'll be screening some of the coolest, cruelest, most disturbing and delightful cartoons you'll ever see, accompanied by rock, rollick and roll by the legendary Brendan Canty (Fugazi), Jim Becker (Califone) and Jerry Busher, playing live before the movies and along with the films of Brent Green. This is a program you don't want to miss, because "Wondrous things happen all the time, and to sleep through even one of them could cripple your life" (Hadacol Christmas).
