Student-made doc tackles gentrification in Philly

The Fight

The Fight

The city of Philadelphia is back on the map after decades of disinvestment. But at what cost? “The Fight” highlights a case of eminent domain in Southwest Philly as a lens into the downsides of revitalization.

Temple student Daniel Ray tackles the history of homeownership in the city of Philadelphia in his film, from redlining, white flight, and blight to revitalization and finally to eminent domain and displacement, through interviews with experts, academics and long-time residents.

Using the funds from winning the Lew Klein Excellence in Media Scholarship, Klein College student Daniel Ray produced, directed, and edited “The Fight” to highlight the lives of Philadelphians that are living in the fallout of the city’s revitalization regime.

Tune in to TUTV this Friday, April 20 12:30 and 8:30 p.m. to watch the premiere.

Hidden City creators discuss Philly secrets

Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City

Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City

Authors and urban observers Nathaniel Popkin and Peter Woodall, creators of Hidden City,  discuss Philadelphia and its myriad communities at a presentation at Temple University. Their work explores a number of places that have almost disappeared―from workshops and factories to sporting clubs and societies, synagogues, churches, theaters, and railroad lines—and the neighborhoods connected to those places. They connect Philadelphia’s idiosyncratic history, culture, and people to develop an alternative theory of American urbanism, and place the city in American urban history. “In Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City,” published by Temple University Press, Popkin and Woodall uncover the contemporary essence of one of America’s oldest cities.

Watch this presentation on TUTV this Wednesday, March 21 at 4:30 p.m.
