UIC Sociology is proud to host award-winning filmmaker Ronita Bezalel, whose first film on Cabrini Green won an award for catalyzing dialogue on housing issues in Chicago.

The event will feature a screening of Bezalel’s most recent film, 70 Acres in Chicago: Cabrini Green, after which Professor Maria Krysan, a scholar of racial residential segregation, will interview the film maker on what the film tells us about the sociology of race, housing, and urban policy in Chicago.

The event will be held at 6 p.m. on October 6th, at the UIC Great Cities Institute, 412 S. Peoria Street, Suite 400, in Chicago.
