Tea Lounge (837 Union St., Brooklyn)
Vulture Culture, 21 minutes, 2011 Directed by Eric Rockey. Can garbage be used to foster community? That’s the question anarchist collective In Our Hearts asks in the short documentary Vulture Culture. Collective members create a Free Store and host free community dinners with food rescued from dumpsters, working to create connections between community members in Brooklyn’s legendary Bed-Stuy neighborhood. Their efforts are threatened by the elements and by unknown opponents who try to sabotage their work.
