WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2015

Told through the personal accounts of residents, business owners, politicians, developers, and clergy, Shawn Batey's film Changing Face of Harlem explores the development and transition of the historic Black community over a ten-year span. The film tackles the pressing issues of class and cultural preservation as the neighborhood struggles to change for the better.

Changing Face of Harlem was chosen as an official selection for The San Diego Black Film Festival, The San Francisco Black Film Festival, Big Muddy Film Festival, Reel Sisters Film Festival, and numerous other festivals and conferences nationwide. The film has also screened at Maysles Cinema, Anthology Archives, and CUNY Gotham Center.
