Our friends up at Curbed NY tipped us off to this event happening at Artisphere this weekend that would appeal to any and all people interested in urban development. The documentary, Battle For Brooklyn, is about Atlantic Yards and the fight to keep it from the hands of developers with a few eminent domain laws on their side. The film was shortlisted for the Oscars and the trailer is after the jump along with the link to this weekend's screening schedule.
