from Arts Engine, Inc.:

Our next DocuClub will take place on Thursday, March 22, 7 p.m. at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker). This month, we will screen a rough cut of Changing Face of Harlem by award-winning filmmaker Shawn Batey. March's DocuClub will be moderated by Marilyn Ness, Arts Engine's Director of Production.

Changing Face of Harlem is a one-hour documentary that examines the revitalization of Harlem told through the deeply personal stories of its residents, small business owners, politicians, developers and clergy. The film takes a critical look at Harlem’s history, early development, and present transformation. Twenty years ago, according to the press, Harlem was a crime-ridden ghetto full of hoodlums and drugs. Though recognized internationally as “The Black Mecca,” the historic neighborhood was overlooked for decades. Longtime residents weathered the storm despite the lack of city services and building landlord abandonment. Bank practices of redlining in the 1980’s prevented many residents from purchasing turn of the century brownstones within their own blocks. Recently, however Harlem has matured into a prosperous locale for commercial and corporate interests. As New York City exhausts its scarce amount of centrally located prime real estate, it has marketed Harlem as an ideal investment. With this influx of new investment has come a younger, more professional, and affluent class of residents. The film offers fresh perspectives from community members on the pressing issues of class, cultural preservation and sustainability.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.
Tickets will be sold at the door, cash only.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

No admittance after 7:15 p.m. Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:

Hello! I am looking for a grant writer to help with my film – Star in the RIng – it tells the story of when Jews DOMINATED the sport of boxing. It is a part of Jewish history / American history and sport history, that is all but forgotten.

I am honored to say that I received a grant from The Righteous Persons Foundation.

The ideal grant writer could start with helping me write a two page letter of inquiry that can be tailored to the foundations I have narrowed down. I am part of NYFA – which makes this project have a 501 – c – 3 status. I am hoping the good people here – who have done this adventure, may have some recommendations they had good experience and are willing to share. I have been in touch with Joanna Rabiger – she sounds wonderful from people on here... but she is not available till the summer.

Thanks so much for any help!
Here is a link to my website:
and my email is:

Thanks again!

Hello. I'm shooting a feature in Eastern Washington state some time this summer. I'm curious if anyone can point me towards the best grip and electric rental house in Seattle. If there is even more than one. I'm looking for a good deal on a 5 ton package and a 500 amp genny. I'm also looking for local talent in the grip and electric departments. I know this isn't strictly along documentary lines, but I thought I'd give this forum a try, as I'm striking out in other places.

Elizabeth Westrate

Hi Holden, I recommend Anne Seidlitz, I have worked with her several times on similar projects. I have forwarded your listing to her. Good luck!

Is anyone in need of audio post production services for their documentaries? I work independently as well as with a world class post production studio called Clatter&Din studios. I was recently lead sound designer for the feature films "Safety Not Guaranteed" and "Eden" which did extremely well at Sundance and SXSW respectively. I have also worked on a number of documentary projects including a 50 minute doc called "Uncertain Ice" which you can find a clip from on my website.
I hope to hear from some of you soon.

DocuClub Screenings: Next DocuClub Wednesday April 18th at DCTV!

This month, we will screen a rough cut of MEXICAN DREAM. Our moderator will be Vanessa Erazo of New York International Latino Film Festival.

MEXICAN DREAM is about one group of indigenous migrants who change a pastoral but poverty-stricken life in Mexico for a new home in a small meatpacking town in Minnesota. It introduces several families from an impoverished agrarian community in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. It also presents a Midwestern meatpacking town that was at the center of a crushing national defeat of the meatpacker’s union during the Reagan administration, where the Mexican migrants have formed their own community that exists uncomfortably alongside the mostly white population.

A mix of observational documentary and montage with reportage via interviews and several inter-titles shows how the strong sense of community amongst these immigrants perseveres in the U.S. while the anxieties of working class life set in. The social effects on the families of migrants back home are profound. MEXICAN DREAM brings these pressing issues to light and humanizes the denigrated, undocumented “illegals.” It also discusses how these same anxieties haunt the long time white community. Shot on both sides of the border, it shows the contradictions in many Americans’ ideas about immigration
and how Mexican society has accepted it as a convenient outlet for decades.

About the filmmaker:

Jon Wetterau (Videography/Co-Producer) has worked on documentary productions in various roles in India, Central America and Cameroon. He initiated and photographed ONE COUNTRY, CAMEROON; TWO QUARTIERS. He has directed two other projects in his native Queens, New York City and has a work-in-progress about Americans gentrifying San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

About the moderator:

She has curated films on a wide range of topics such as human rights, autism, sports, adoption and homelessness. Until recently, she served as the Programming Co-chair for the New York chapter of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers. She is also a regular film contributor for Remezcla—an online Latino culture guide. Vanessa holds a Master’s degree in Latin American and Caribbean Studies from New York University, and a B.A. in Political Science from San Francisco State University.
