Project Overview

"Reclaiming Bronzeville: The Forum"

In partnership with Studio 1504 and Taylor Lane Creative, I was tasked with writing an original script for a mantra film on Forum Hall in Bronzeville. This short documentary film was intended to amplify Bronzeville, Chicago's rich history and legacies. Furthermore, the film took on the challenge of centering Forum Hall as an icon of its era and its revitalization by the local community as a symbol for the preservation and remembrance of Black culture and prosperity.

I took on a poetic and musical tone, using near-lyricist techniques to paint a bittersweet picture of revitalization and community regeneration.
