Two free film events for Labor Day Weekend

 

A few months back I told you about local filmmaker Anthony Greene and his short film anthology A World At Work. Anthony has two new events this week, once again bringing culture to the East side of the Anacostia.

The first is Art Behind the Art, an exhibition at Blank Space SE of behind-the-scenes photography from local film sets. There will be an opening reception at the gallery this Friday September 2 at 7PM. The show will run for a week and coincide with Anthony's second event, The East of the River Film Festival.

Conceived by members of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, and completed under the leadership of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Foundation, the MLK memorial on the National Mall was supposed to be dedicated on August, 28, 2011 on the 48th Anniversary of the March on Washing for Jobs and Freedom.  However with the impending threat of Hurricane Irene the dedication along with the remaining weekend events were forced to be postponed for a later time this fall.
