Whole lot of popcorn passin' been goin' on round here as of late. For this latest edition, we take it from Brooklyn all the way to the Bay Area for tonight's premiere of Nelson George & Diane Paragas' documentary Brooklyn Boheme. The Fort Greene and Clinton Hill sections of Brooklyn sure don't look like they use to, with Brooklyn Boheme we get a deeper look at "BK's equivalent to the Harlem Renaissance" in the mid 80s through early 90s through the eyes of Nelson, Spike Lee, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, Branford Marsalis, Carl Hancock Rux, Chris Rock, Vernon Reid, Talib Kweli, and more. Watch the trailer above, and Bay Area residents can joint Nelson George and SFNY at the premiere tonight at the Clay Theater, which will be followed by the wrap party. Get tix and more info here.
