In the midst of Michael Bloomberg’s controversial third bid for mayor, The Promise of New York, an award-winning documentary film that combines irreverent humor with thought-provoking political discourse, will be holding 3 special screenings before the September 15th Democratic Primary in what will prove to be a very timely call for citizen involvement in local politics.
The film follows the interlocking stories of three New Yorkers who compete against each other and billionaire incumbent Michael Bloomberg in the 2005 mayoral elections.
