Chris Ivey is a Pittsburgh based filmmaker who has traveled around the world working on documentary films. Over the past 2 years he has been working on a film about East Liberty called East of Liberty. I had a chance to see some of the raw footage when Chris started working on this and in the past year he even shown the film in London. East of Liberty is a look at the stories and the people of East Liberty who aren’t usually the ones getting the media attention around some of the current development there. The Union Project is showing the film as part of their Monday conversation series about the neighborhood. I think this is well worth attending. I am including the details below the video clip.
BOOK SIGNING & EAST OF LIBERTY SHOWING – This Monday – APRIL 28TH, 6:30pm
Come down to the Union Project this Monday, April 28th at 6:30pm for a double whammy of “Owning Your Community.” Start the night off early with a book signing for the newly released, Pittsburgh’s East Liberty Valley, a historical perspective on East Liberty and the surrounding neighborhood. At 6:30pm, East of Liberty: The Fear of Us, a documentary film by local filmmaker Chris Ivey, focusing on the redevelopment of Pittsburgh’s east end, will be shown. A discussion with Ivey will follow the documentary. Come grab a seat and delve into your community this Monday.

Where was this screened in London? I used to work for a documentary film foundation there. I’d love to see it!
