Rooftop Films "Panorama" — a special weekend within the 2008 Summer Film Series —
Rooftop is best known for showing new independent films in unique outdoor locations throughout the city, in a way that connects filmmakers and audience, films with neighborhoods.
On Friday, June 13, the World Premiere of Captured—a feature-length documentary about Clayton Patterson, prolific photo documentarian of the turbulent Lower East Side for over 30 years—will be held on a graffiti-covered roof in the neighborhood the film is about, highlighting Rooftop's singular ability to premiere films in a memorable and meaningful way.
Rooftop Films will host parties and present live music. Screenings will be proceeded by live music from O'Death, A.R.E. Weapons and Silver Haunches, presented by Sound Fix Records.
