Louisville Grows Film Series: Priced Out
Priced Out is an investigative and personal look at housing discrimination and the pain of losing a community to gentrification. The film explores the complexities and contradictions of gentrification and life after the era of “the ghetto.” The documentary powerfully illustrates how government policies and market forces combine to destroy and rebuild neighborhoods. Some embrace new investment at first, but few are left standing when new money moves in and old residents find themselves priced out.
