70 Acres in Chicago: Cabrini Green -
It's been a long journey.
We started filming at Cabrini Green on a cold day in 1995 - the first towers were being demolished and residents were being displaced. Fifteen years later we filmed the last family leaving and the demolition of the final Cabrini highrise.
In between, we filmed over 350 hours of footage celebrating a public housing community that has ceased to exist.
70 Acres in Chicago: Cabrini Green is the ambitious documentary chronicling the 15-year demolition of Chicago's most iconic public housing project and the subsequent displacement the African American community that once lived there.
Combining residents' stories with key interviews from politicians, developers and academics, 70 Acres in Chicago: Cabrini Green tells the history of a volatile neighborhood and Chicago's infamous legacy of segregation.
70 Acres in Chicago: Cabrini Green is
the highly anticipated sequel to Voices of Cabrini: Remaking Chicago's Public Housing.
