PBS INDEPENDENT LENS POP-UP SCREENING: DECADE OF FIRE

We’re teaming up with Panhandle PBS to present this screening of Decade of Fire by Vivian Vázquez Irizarry, Gretchen Hildebran, and Julia Steele Allen.  In the 1970s, fires raged through the South Bronx. Abandoned by landlords and city officials, nearly a half million residents were displaced from their beloved neighborhood. With the help of fellow survivors, filmmaker and Bronx native Vivian Vázquez Irizarry tells the story of the residents who banded together amidst the rubble and built a better future for their community. Doors open at 6 and the film starts at 6:30, followed by a panel discussion on themes of homelessness, community organizing, and civic engagement.
