Available on FilmRise, Philo, Prime Video, Tubi TV, Plex
Set in Red Hook, a Brooklyn neighborhood on the verge of gentrification, GOOD FUNK tells the story of three generations of citizens, Afro-Caribbean immigrants, whose lives intersect through acts of kindness both big and small. The polyrhythmic narrative is as much a living, breathing document of a community as it is a touching collection of moments in the lives of its inhabitants—cinematic instances that may initially seem elusive in intent but coalesce into a poignant, meaningful cadence. The film is the product of an unprecedented film training and visual literacy program that recruited young Brooklynites to learn filmmaking craft, share their stories and collaborate for pay on a feature film production. The result is a portrait of love enduring and a testament to discovering family in unexpected places.
