No single event will have a more drastic and long-lasting impact on Brooklyn that the Atlantic Yards Project, proposed by nationally-known developer Bruce Ratner and designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry. If built, it would be the densest development in the United States. And yet, this project has circumvented customary financial disclosures, escaped community input, and leapfrogged environmental protections. The public has been misled to believe that the Atlantic Yards proposal was a done deal since the day it was announced. Isabel Hill's documentary, BROOKLYN MATTERS, reveals the fuller truth about the project and highlights how a few powerful men have disregarded planning principles and manipulated a desperate need for jobs and affordable housing in the community to push their interests forward.
