Twilight Becomes Night

A NYC store about to close posted this sign: "Last two days. Thank you for 134 years." There's a lot of sadness packed into those unsentimental words, don't you think?

We've often lamented the dejanejacobsization of New York, with neighborhoods losing their character—and their characters—when local retailers, services, and purveyors are forced out by escalating rents and flush chains.

Director Virginie-Alvine Perrette shares that sense of loss in her documentary Twilight Becomes Night, examining the community impact of such store closings. The movie will be screened at Anthology Film Archives on February 20th, 6pm, in the New Filmmakers lineup. Ms. Perrette will be on hand. You can also purchase the DVD, $16.95, at the film's website.
