Brooklynites’ invasion of Manhattan continues this weekend at the Natural History Museum. Brooklyn filmmaker ERIC DANIEL METZGAR’s documentary, “The Chances of the World Changing,” will be featured at the Museum’s MARGARET MEAD FILM AND VIDEO FESTIVAL through Nov. 12.
Metzgar’s film chronicles a two years in the life of RICHARD OGUST, a writer who enters strange territory as he finds himself struggling to save the lives of hundreds of endangered turtles. Abandoning his literary work, Ogust transforms his Manhattan apartment into a veritable “Noah’s Ark” filled with 1,200 turtles. “The Chances of the World Changing” has won a number of awards at film festivals thus far, and will debut on PBS in 2007 as part of the channel’s P.O.V. series.
