A Tale of Two Cities: North Lawndale, Chicago

November 23, 2015 | 3:57

A Tale of Two Cities: North Lawndale, Chicago is a short film produced by young adults in Free Spirit PRO. Free Spirit PRO was invited by Chicago Media Project to produce this piece as a response to the documentary Romeo Is Bleeding, which tells the story of youth in Richmond, CA who process violence in their community through poetry. A Tale of Two Cities: North Lawndale, Chicago is a thoughtful video about community and the misrepresentation of certain communities in the media such as Chicago's North Lawndale neighborhood. The piece reflects on  the city's West Side as told by the young adults who live and work there.
