Light Industry Screens Shirley Clarke’s The Cool World

COOL WORLD, THE (1963)

Brooklyn’s Light Industry screens Shirley Clarke’s The Cool World, a gritty look at New York’s street life and a rare, frank look at African-American life in the late 1950s. I screened the film many years ago at a NYU summer session class New York Independents.

If you’re in the neighborhood, see the film on Tuesday, July 17, at 7:30 PM.

Light Industry is at 155 Freeman Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
