East of Liberty Part 2

Chris Ivey is an film maker who works on documentarys around the world, but calls Pittsburgh home.  Chris has been working on capturing the story of East Liberty for a few years now.  I was luck enough to catch a glimpse of some of the raw footage a year or so ago when Chris happened to bring his laptop into the Shadow Lounge.  There has been a lot of talk about East Liberty lately, especially with the new development there.  East of Liberty is a look at the stories of East Liberty and the neighbors that don’t often make the news.

Chapter 2 “The Fear of US” is a follow up to the first documentary that opened last year.  Part 1 has recieved much attention and was screened in London in May of 2007.
