Razing NY: the Disappearance of Affordable Housing investigates patterns of gentrification throughout four different NYC neighborhoods. Bringing together community residents, organizers, business people and policy makers in the neighborhoods of the Lower East Side, Williamsburg, Bushwick and Fort Greene, youth producers cast their cameras on the politics of race, class and economic development as communities fight to make housing affordable for all.
Isa's Final Draft
A story about Isabella, a young woman instilled with the dreams of her mother's sacrifices for her daughter to have a better life by accessing education opportunities she never had. This is Isa's journey as she encountered struggles that neither she or her mother ever imagined.
This film was inspired by the true stories of immigrant students. Each year nearly 65,000 youth graduate from high schools without higher education opportunities. Featured at the end of this film is an interview with a Dreamer from the Trail of Dreams campaign.
