Film Discussion – The Pruitt Igoe Myth

December 12 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST

Host Organization: Braver Angels
State: - National

The Pruitt-Igoe Myth (2011, Freidrichs) is a 123-minute, 2011 documentary that tells the story of the transformation of the American city in the decades after World War II through the lens of the infamous Pruitt-Igoe housing development and the St. Louis residents who called it home.

The world-famous image of its implosion has helped to perpetuate a myth of failure, a failure that has been used to critique Modernist architecture, attack public assistance programs, and stigmatize public housing residents. The Pruitt-Igoe Myth seeks to set the historical record straight. View the trailer here (http://www.pruitt-igoe.com/index.html) and watch the film here (Vimeo).

** This event is open to the media upon approval. Media contact: Ciaran O’Connor, ciaran@braverangels.org
