Flag Wars

(Linda Goode Bryant and Laura Poitras, 2003)

Sun, Nov 1, 2015 3 PM

Filmed in Columbus’s Olde Towne East neighborhood over a period of four years, Flag Wars is a very personal account of urban gentrification and its effects on a community. Now a common phenomenon, gay families began moving into the area in the 1990s—attracted by and renovating its relatively inexpensive Victorian homes—increasing property values and displacing the neighborhood’s working-class families, many of them African American. Clashes arise, exposing prejudice and self-interest on both sides as well as the common dream of having a home to call your own. (86 mins., video)
