Into My Life
Growing up in the 1960’s and 70’s in the largest affordable housing cooperative in Brooklyn, Cassandra Bromfield’s world was artfully framed by her mother’s Super-8 camera. A schoolteacher with many creative talents, Cassandra’s mom documented the exuberance of her neighborhood’s public spaces: the lively pool, the packed playground, and the handball court graffiti. Her passion to create was passed on to her daughter. Cassandra still lives in the same place, working as a fashion designer by day and filmmaker by night, assembling images of her own life and environment with footage shot by her mother. Into my Life is a moving tribute to her community and the power of creative self-representation.
