A screening of “Twilight Becomes Night,” a documentary film by Virginie-Alvine Perrette, will be held on November 6 from 7-8:30 p.m. in The Kane Street Synagogue, 336 Kane Street.
“Twilight Becomes Night” examines the pivotal role of neighborhood stores in individual lives, communities, and society as a whole.
Using the streets and shops of New York City as a backdrop, the film moves beyond nostalgic regret to reveal a high-stakes transformation and its potential to affect us all.
“Twilight Becomes Night” is an intimate and emotional portrait of the struggle of small businesses today. It also explores the issues that are threatening neighborhood stores — the large chains, high rents, and public policy, among others.
And yet, in the end, it is a reminder of the power of individual commitment and community activism in preserving local business.
The film will be followed by a question and answer session, the panel of which includes David Yassky, city councilman; Craig Hammerman, district leader, CB6; and Chelsea Maudin, Montague Street BID.
