Interfaith Community Pre-Screening of Providence Lost
Two Weeks Away!
Join us on July 11th
"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.
Join faith leaders and community members for a pre-screening of this short film followed by a panel discussion featuring the Trottiers, filmmaker Oscar Dupuy d'Angeac, Brenda Clement (HousingWorks RI) and moderated by Bishop Knisely (Episcopal Diocese of RI).
