Gentrification Film Shown In Wynwood Just Before Basel Madness

Natalie Edgar

Crowds frequenting Wynwood's eccentric bars and restaurants likely don't think of the old neighborhood's longtime residents, some of whom have had to leave their homes after the area's recent art revival.

But some Wynwood natives have been pushed out. The neighborhood's gentrification is explored in the documentary "Right to Wynwood."

This Sunday, Dec. 1, the nomadic art gallery The Space Committee will host an informal screening of the film in one of the homes it features. FIU professor of urban sociology Marcus Feldman will participate in a panel discussion of the recent changes in the arts district, and their implications.

"The neighborhood has changed for the worse," longtime resident Oria says in the film trailer. "It's not what it used to be."

Read WLRN's interview with the film's creators here, and watch the trailer below. For more information on Sunday's screening event, visit The Space Committee's page.
