Circulate San Diego, and the Media Arts Center are hosting a screening of The Pruitt-Igoe Myth on Thursday, July 20th from 6 - 8 pm at the Digital Gym in North Park. If you are unfamiliar with the movie, it chronicles the development and destruction of a massive low-income housing project in St. Louis.
After the screening, Circulate will facilitate a panel discussion on the importance of good planning, affordable housing, and having transportation choices—with an emphasis of what's happened and is happening locally.
There are a limited number of free tickets. If you are unable to RSVP for the event on this page, it means that we've run out of free passes. However, if you still want to attend, you can purchase tickets by clicking here.

About the Film
The Pruitt-Igoe Myth explores the social, economic and legislative issues that led to the decline of conventional public housing in America, and the city centers in which they were built, while tracing the personal and poignant narratives of several of the residents of the notorious Pruitt-Igoe public housing complex in St. Louis.
