Default Official Trailer | Decade of Fire | Independent Lens | PBS



From NBCnews.com:

As the fires raging across California draw national attention, a new documentary explores a time when fires raged across a major metropolitan area — and no one seemed to care.

On Monday, Nov. 4, PBS Independent Lens will premiere “Decade of Fire,” a look at why the Bronx burned in the 1970s, and how some community members chose to stay and rebuild their neighborhoods.

For co-director Vivian Vázquez Irizarry, the film was a chance to understand the forces that shaped her childhood and adolescence.

Thank you so much for posting this!

I was able to catch it Wednesday evening on our PBS channel out of Tacoma WA. I don't mean to get on a soapbox here, but no doubt many palms were greased to look the other way...everyone from fire/arson inspectors to the local politicians.

Sad to say this is still happening today but not as blatantly and under the guise of gentrification (the process of repairing and rebuilding homes and businesses in a deteriorating area (such as an urban neighborhood) accompanied by an influx of middle-class or affluent people and that often results in the displacement of earlier, usually poorer residents).

Glad you were able to catch it, Homoe. I watched it, too, and found it heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. And yep, different (new?) forms of redlining are happening in major cities like Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, NYC—areas marked as not worthy to get mortgages, insurance, basic maintenance. Fuck.

The documentary is available online at the Independent Lens page at PBS.org: https://www.pbs.org/video/decade-of-fire-uoty1d/
