After a brief tussle with the NYC Parks GreenThumb, the entity overseeing community gardens, the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) is excited to (once again) present their eighth annual film festival.
It started last night — sorry! I only received this info at the last minute! Via the EVG inbox:
