Human Rights Watch Film Festival: Razing Liberty Square (Virtual)

June 5, 2023 - 12:00 am - June 11, 2023 - 11:30 pm


DCEFF is excited to be a presenting partner on this virtual screening of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival.

As rising seas threaten Miami’s luxurious beachfront, wealthy property owners are pushing inland to higher ground. Residents of the historically Black neighborhood of Liberty Square—the first segregated public housing project in the South—are the new target of an upcoming “revitalization” project due to their location 12 feet above sea level. From Academy Award nominated filmmaker Katja Esson, Razing Liberty Square shares perspectives from all angles— residents, community advocates, teachers, developers,, and politicians—following the redevelopment from start to finish.

In-person screenings in New York City: Friday, June 2, and Tuesday, June 6.

Streaming to viewers in the US: Monday, June 5, through Saturday, June 10.

Use exclusive code RESIST23 for $2 off both digital and in-person tickets.
