Animating the Housing Crisis – video


In 2017, we had the pleasure of working with Detroit videographer and filmmaker Justin Ivory and Space Monkey Productions. Ivory is working on short documentary on the housing crisis in Detroit and focused some of his work on Detroit Eviction Defense and the case of the Bishop who lost his house in a foreclosure scam.

Though the documentary is still in progress, Ivory shared this short animation drawn from our research at the Urban Praxis Workshop and work of Detroit Eviction Defense, a mutual aid organization dedicated to working with and organizing those fighting to for their place.
