SYNOPSIS

Amidst the ivy-draped remnants of once-notorious public housing projects , ‘For Those That Lived There’ weaves a visual tapestry, navigating the poignant impacts of gentrification, the displacement of Black legacies, and the emergent migrant narratives. Against Chicago’s ever-evolving skyline, this evocative exploration immerses audiences into the soul of a neighborhood transformed.
