Shot in Columbus' Olde Towne East neighborhood, the Peabody-winning 2013 documentary Flag Wars captures the conflicts between residents over the gentrification of a historic Black neighborhood.

In response to the current focus nationally on tensions between neighbors in relation to the Presidential election, we've brought back Flag Wars to watch for free today through December 3. And Wex Film/Video Director Dave Filipi engaged codirector Linda Goode Bryant for a new conversation about the film.

The artist, curator, social activist, and Columbus native was the founder of the groundbreaking New York City gallery Just Above Midtown, the focus of a forthcoming exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Her other film work includes 1998's Hurricane Teens and 2006's Can You See Me Now. In 2009, Goode Bryant founded Project Eats, an urban farming initiative aimed at sustainable food production in Black and brown communities in New York City.
