"BMF: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Drug Empire" Premieres at Cobble Hill Cinemas

On Thursday, September 27 at 7 PM, Errante Films will premiere documentary BMF: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Drug Empire, John Errante's second documentary, at Cobble Hill Cinemas, 265 Court Street in Brooklyn.

General admission is $20 and VIP reserved seats are $35. Reserve online at www.cobblehilltheatre.com; by phone at (718) 596-9113; or through Errante Films at (718) 612-1122.

The documentary, including previously-unreleased wiretaps and investigative files, is a thoughtful, unbiased examination of the self-declared “Black Mafia Family.” The BMF syndicate infiltrated the hip-hop music industry, becoming the target of a fifteen-year investigation and one of the biggest domestic drug prosecutions ever.

The after-party will be around the corner at Verde, at 216 Smith Street, where film-goers can meet director Don Sikorski, the producers, and representatives of The Seton Foundation over a prix fixe dinner. The cost is $60 per person and includes a three-course dinner, non-alcoholic drinks, music by DJ Sinatra, and live performance by R 'n B artist B Notes. Full bar.

Part of the proceeds from the screening will benefit The Seton Foundation, sponsor of programs for developmentally-disabled children. 

Another part will go to support Errante's next film, in which he and his wife, Stacey, Cobble Hill natives, undertake a journey of discovery as parents of a daughter with a form of Autism known as Pervasive Developmental Disorder.
