Urban Housing Documentary at Cinefest

Head over to GSU’s very own movie theater, Cinefest, this week to see “The Pruitt-Igoe Myth”.

The Pruitt-Igoe Myth explores the social, economic and legislative issues that led to the decline of conventional public housing in America, and the city centers in which they were built, while tracing the personal and poignant narratives of several of the residents of the notorious Pruitt-Igoe public housing complex in St. Louis.

Playing through Sunday, February 12; check the Cinefest website for showtimes.

To learn more about urban environments, check out the following books at the GSU University Library:
