Event Details

Join Signs of Providence and members of the housing community in Rhode Island for the screening of a short film, followed by a panel and public conversation about evictions and policy solutions. 

"Providence Lost," a short nonfiction film, follows a family undergoing an eviction and their subsequent search for a new home. In 2018, the Trottiers were one of more than 13,000 households to be evicted in Rhode Island. Their struggle against soaring rents and a dysfunctional safety net is shared by a majority of renters across the state. This portrait of a city divided, caught between the promise of glamorous development and the reality of our current housing crisis, forces us to reckon with the human cost of change, and asks us to imagine the possibility of a city for all.

Únase a Signs of Providence y miembros de la comunidad de viviendas en Rhode Island para la presentación de una película corta, seguido por un panel y conversación publica sobre los desalojos, y las soluciones políticas.

Providence Lost,una película de no ficción corta, sigue a una familia pasando por un desalojo y su búsqueda para una casa nueva. En 2018, la familia Trottier fue una de más de 13.000 hogares a ser desalojado en Rhode Island. Su lucha contra rentas elevadas y una red de seguridad disfuncional también es compartido por la mayoría de los inquilinos a través del Rhode Island. Este retrato de una ciudad divida, atrapado entre la promesa de desarrollo glamoroso y la realidad de la crisis actual de la vivienda, nos obliga a tener en cuento el coste humano de los cambios, y nos pregunta imaginar la posibilidad de una ciudad para todos.
