J is for Junkie

This is a wonderful film shot in Atlanta, GA (where I lived for three years) that follows the lives of crack heads. As comical as the description is, the film treats them with dignity and exposes some interesting insights into their grim reality.

I was reminded of this film as I worked from Tea Lounge last week. It happened to be a night when Brooklyn Skillshare was putting on a free class about starting a documentary from scratch.

Great documentary, great lounge, and great class.
