Archival footage: Voices of Cabrini

| No Comments

Via the astute minds at Gapers Block comes a fascinating discovery: raw footage filmed for a documentary on Cabrini Green in the mid 1990's. The website Media Burn has digitized and is now hosting 60 hours of raw footage shot by Ronit Bezalel and Antonio Ferrera over four years (1995-1999) that was ultimately trimmed down into the half-hour documentary Voices of Cabrini: Remaking Chicago's Public Housing. Organized by category, the videos offer a raw glimpse at life in the public housing project that was often seen as one of public housing's greatest failures.

The full, original documentary can also be viewed here.
