Come to the NYC SUNDAY NIGHT (Sept. 22nd) Screening of the hit slam poetry doc Don't Be Nice, followed by a Q&A w/ members of the production team with Special Guest Host John Buffalo Mailer!

JOHN BUFFALO MAILER is an award winning screenwriter, journalist, playwright, actor, and producer. As an actor, he cut his teeth at The Actors Studio at the age of twelve and went on to perform in a dozen plays in New York City throughout the 2000‘s. As a screen actor, Buffalo has appeared opposite Shia LaBeouf in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street - Money Never Sleeps, Paul Giamatti and Ellen Burstyn in Matthew Barney’s River of Fundament, Tony Sirico in Friends and Romans, Alec Baldwin, Demi Moore, and Dylan McDermott in BLIND (which he also wrote), Sienna Miller in PRIVATE LIFE OF A MODERN WOMAN, and can be seen in the upcoming features set for release in 2019, THE SECOND SON, AMERICAN TERRORIST, and DIERY (the second two of which he also wrote and produced).

Don't Be Nice is the story of the upstart Bowery Slam Poetry Team, made up of five young African-American, Afro-Hispanic and queer poets, preparing for the national championships. As their coach pushes them past their personal boundaries to write from a painfully honest place, the poets break down, break through, and ultimately write their masterpiece.
