Down, went to art school in Liverpool and has long been resident in Brooklyn – is pictured left during the making of a documentary about him that will be screened on next Thursday, May 2, as part of this year’s Greenpoint Film Festival. “Rodney Dickson” is produced by Bill Page Productions, Inc., New York City.
