On TV: THE PLACE THAT MAKES US

Coming to The WORLD Channel’s America ReFramed tomorrow, Tuesday, March 30:
THE PLACE THAT MAKES US

Director:
Karla Murthy

World Premiere:
Woods Hole 2020

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Big Sky Doc, St Louis, River’s Edge

About:
Residents of a post-industrial town work to restore their community.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Youngstown, Ohio, once a booming steel and mining town, is now the epitome of post-industrial decline. Plunging population, derelict housing, and crime plague the city, but a new crop of industrious entrepreneurs and community activists refuse to accept defeat, nor will they abandon their beloved hometown. Together they rise up to restore homes, generate business, and ignite their community. Director Karla Murthy’s film is a powerful testament of their resiliency and ingenuity.
