A Queens filmmaker is having a movie screening and fundraiser this month to help put the finishing touches on the story of two friends from the city who take divergent paths to adulthood.
The movie, by writer and director George Cox of Jamaica, is called “Street Choice.”
“It’s about two young men, one who is a ‘have’ and the other who is a ‘have not,’” Cox said. “It’s about the choices the two characters make growing up, with street gangs, struggling with peer pressure.”
One young man becomes a doctor and returns home to his neighborhood.
Cox said exterior filming all has been done, and that he now is having the fundraiser to help pay for studio time and technical work still needed to finish the project.
The screening will take place on Sunday evening March 17, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Antun’s, located at 96-43 Springfield Blvd.
Tickets are $50 in advance and $55 at the door on the night of the screening. Coffee and desert will be served.
Advance tickets may be obtained by calling (917) 602-6535.
