Every Chicagoan should see this documentary - JR Jones, Chicago Reader
70 Acres in Chicago explores the effects of demolishing Chicago's iconic Cabrini Green public housing and replacing the highrises with mixed-income condominiums. The impact this urban experiment has on Cabrini Green residents and new urban settlers, creates a compelling personal and political drama. Located on Chicago's most valuable real estate, the film also questions and problematizes who has a right to the city.
