Saturday in the Park Film Screening + Discussion
Join REI and Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit that operates Prospect Park in partnership with the City, for SATURDAY IN THE PARK, a new short film executive produced and narrated by Steve Buscemi. The screening of this film celebrating Brooklyn’s Backyard will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers and Prospect Park Alliance staff who spend their days caring for the park’s woodlands, meadows and waterways.
In SATURDAY IN THE PARK, take a walk around Prospect Park’s 585 acres to meet some of the millions of community members who call this place their backyard, their favorite hangout, their refuge and their salvation.
There’s no better local tour guide than Buscemi, a Brooklyn native who lives within walking distance of the triumphal arch at Prospect Park’s northern entrance. He introduces us to warbler-loving tween birders, a park ecologist working on a large reforestation project, musicians who made the park their stage during COVID-19, volunteers both young and young-at-heart, a dancer who finds inspiration in nature and more.
