My Brooklyn tells the story of director Kelly Anderson, who sets off to understand the process of gentrification that led her neighbourhood to transform itself. The documentary explores the bohemian Brooklyn of the late 1980s and tracks the borough’s redevelopment when the real estate boom of the early 2000s forces out long-time working-class residents in favour of new, affluent ones—and sparks a debate over who has the right to live there.
