Happy New Year My Brooklyn community,

Great news – My Brooklyn is going to be on TV on Tuesday, January 14th!

The screening is part of the PBS series America ReFramed, curated by the American Documentary team (the producers of POV). America ReFramed brings nonfiction independent films to the airwaves and cable, showcasing films that give viewers a “snapshot of the transforming American life — the guts, the glory, the grit of a new and changing America.”

Most of the screenings are on PBS World channels, but some regular stations, like WGBH in Boston, are showing it on their main channels too. To find out if you have PBS World via broadcast or cable, go to http://worldchannel.org/schedule/localize/ and enter your zipcode. The program you are looking for is America reFramed and the date for My Brooklyn is Jan. 14th, 2014. It’s not as complicated as it sounds, and there are some other amazing documentaries on the series so it’s worth knowing how to find it.

My Brooklyn will also be streaming free from the America ReFramed site for a month (details coming up on that).

Thanks, as always, for all your support. And best wishes for 2014!

Kelly & Allison
