Bronx native Reinaldo Marcus Green shoots film ‘Stop’ on stop-and-frisk in Red Hook
A Bronx native now living in Brooklyn has made a film about stop-and-frisk that was shot on the streets of Red Hook.
"Stop" is a short film about stop-and-frisk made by Reinaldo Marcus Green. The story focuses on a young man that's on his way home from baseball practice. He gets stopped by police and his livelihood is put to the test.
Many scenes of "Stop" were shot near the Red Hook ballfields, a neighborhood deli and the Red Hook NYCHA houses.
Green has been stopped himself, so he hopes his film shows the different sides of the stop-and-frisk issue.
"Stop" just wrapped up shooting and is slated to be completed in the next four months or so.
