Outer Borough Realness – Shorts Program

Outer Borough Realness

Thursday October 24 @ 9:15 pm

This program will also screen on Sunday, 10/27 at 1:45pm

A vibrant collection of stories that reach beyond Manhattan and take you on a funny, romantic, powerful, and very queer quest through Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens (sorry Staten Island) faster than a ride on the G train, OUTERBOROUGH REALNESS is where local talent shines, reaching far and wide to place the undersung majority of New York City’s population front and center.

Total Running Time: 86 min
