Brick by Brick: A Civil Rights Story

Pedra a pedra: una història dels drets civils

Bill Kavanagh, Sylke Fröchtenigt. 2007. Original language, Catalan subtitles. 53'.

This documentary about the contemporary American fight for civil rights follows three families from Yonkers (New York) as they confront political ideas and racial discrimination laws in neighbourhoods and schools, and how their actions challeng and change their city. The film shows how a ghetto was created in Yonkers because of public policies, a subject David Simon took on in the miniseries 'Show Me a Hero' (2015).
