Reviewing Gentrification on Film

New, 1 comment

UrbanOmnibus reviews two new documentaries addressing gentrification in Brooklyn—My Brooklyn and Gut Renovation—and finds them starkly different. On My Brooklyn: "This film is not subtle in its criticisms of gentrification, but the argument is compelling thanks to Anderson’s rational raising of valid questions about how New York is changing, not blindly arguing that it shouldn’t." Gut Renovation: "...She is 'filming the people that are ruining the neighborhood.' This tone of superiority and condescension permeates the entire film." [UrbanOmnibus]
