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.
