Gaining Ground by Llewellyn Smith (US, 2013, 58 min.). In the midst of the economic meltdown, Gaining Ground explores the innovative, grassroots organizing efforts of the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative in Boston. Over the course of two years, we watch a new generation of leaders working to prevent foreclosures and bring jobs and opportunities for young people to one of the city’s most diverse and economically challenged neighborhoods.
Grove Hall: Pride and Promise by Tony Bennis (US, 2013, 38 min.). Over the last 70 years, the Grove Hall neighborhood in Boston has gone through periods of prosperity, deep civil unrest, and economic hardship, leaving a legacy of inter-generational poverty. But, more recently there have been indications of a community-led revitalization. For the people living in Grove Hall, it is their pride, resiliency, and determination that are leading their community towards a positive future built from within. Grove Hall: Pride and Promise is a touching documentary that shows one neighborhood's triumph over adversity.
