Architecture in Film: The Pruitt-Igoe Myth

July 13, 2012 | By

33 buildings on 40+ acres housing 12,000 people. Imploded into oblivion in 1971.

Just uploaded is a review of Chad Freidrich’s excellent 2011 doc The Pruitt-Igoe Myth [M] (First Run Features), America’s controversial public housing project that lived between 1954-1971 before each of the complex’s 33 buildings were imploded.

Yes, this is a super-brief blog. Oodles more reviews to follow over the next two days, including Corman’s World, The Aggression Scale, and As Good As It Gets on Blu.

The delay’s due to some necessary extended time with After Effects in order to solve an animation issue with a main title sequence, and figuring out how to integrate analogue visuals into some transition effects.

You did ask…
