Prince of Broadway

Does anyone know where or when the Prince of Broadway might be playing? I noticed that it's playing at BAM Rose Cinema on Tuesday at 4pm, but sadly I can't make it and it seems this is the only time to see it. It looks like an interesting story. And, BAM is currently having a film festival entitled: Best of the African Diaspora Film Festival

Here's a synopsis:

Prince of Broadway is the story of Lucky and Levon, two men whose lives converge in the underbelly of New York's wholesale fashion district. Lucky, an illegal immigrant from Ghana, makes ends meet by soliciting shoppers on the street with knock-off brand merchandise. Levon, a Armenian-Lebanese immigrant, operates an illegal storefront with a concealed back room where counterfeit goods are showcased to interested shoppers. Lucky's world is suddenly turned upside down when a child is thrust into his life by a woman who insists the toddler is his son. While Lucky copes with his new domestic dilemma, Levon struggles to save a marriage that is falling apart.
