Documentary Addresses Housing Problems Faced by Low-Income Residents of Memphis

Two Memphis-based documentarians on Monday presented the first chapter in a series of films highlighting housing concerns in the city, The Commercial Appeal reports. Jordan Danelz and Benjamin Rednour created the documentary to address common problems faced by Memphis’ low-income residents. The films will look at predatory lending, foreclosures, inability to afford necessary home repairs, absentee landlords and lack of transit. The series was created with assistance from Neighborhood Preservation Inc., an organization founded by Memphis community leaders who seek to promote revitalization of blighted parcels in the city and clear legal hurdles regarding development of these properties.
