BROOKLYN - Excitement is ramping up for the opening of the new Barclays Center, but a new documentary is highlighting a darker side of the main event.

"Battle for Brooklyn" is about the development of the center and the people it affected. The film focuses on one particular family who was forced to leave their home because of eminent domain.

The first free screening for residents was held Wednesday, but more will be scheduled in the coming weeks.
