In solidarity and unity with the SAGAFTRA and WGA strike, we are postponing our "Brooklyn"  production. 

In the case of contracts accepted and signed by all parties, we set new planned days for our production on April 22 - May 25, 2024 and the project will be restructred according to our locations, cast and crew prepared for the previous shooting period. 

We wish both Unions success in their fight for fair wages and better working conditions, which are so needed in the new era of the film, streaming platforms and broadcasters industries. 

In Solidarity

IMDb about “BROOKLYN”:    
IMDb LOG-LINE: Three different characters collide at the Brooklyn intersection; their hope, need, and thirst takes us on a life-changing journey in an urban pot.  The feeling of injustice, existential problems of poor African Americans parents and rejection are the main idea in the first story - "Hope". The emotion of being in love, the sense of being together with someone is the main plot of the second story, "Need". The third story, a psychological drama, "Thirst", is about the sadness and sorrow after the death of a dearest person and about the way to come back to normal life and to maintain it.    
The screenplay of “Brooklyn” was written in 1997 and the first story "Hope" was significantly updated in 2009 (registered again at WGA,W), additional small changes in 2nd and 3rd story were added in 2016 and 2019. “Brooklyn: Hope, Need, Thirst” is an antiracist psychological dark dramedy triptych, which action takes place in 2019 and shows in the background the nationwide progressive movement of people inspired by Senator Bernie Sanders, which fits the pro-climate tone of my film, expected by so many viewers and the context of hatred inspired by Donald Trump.
The project is planned SAGAFTRA full budget.
