Voices of Cabrini
Director: Ronit Bezalel
1999 – 30 minutes.
A panel discussion featuring Ciaran Mackel (Architect), Billy Mitchell (Link Community Association), and Ciaran Kearney (Falls Community Council) will follow the film.
Shot over a three-year period, this superb documentary follows the residents of Chicagos best-known public housing development as their homes are marked for destruction in the interest of urban gentrification. The film captures the diverse voices of the community, many worried if the city will keep its promise to replace Cabrini with equally affordable housing. “…a gripping story about living in the city…”
The demolition of Cabrini Green is part of a nation-wide trend to tear down high rise public housing. What does this mean for the future of public housing?
