  • The Pruitt-Igoe Myth

    It began as a housing marvel. Two decades later, it ended in rubble. But what happened to those caught in between?

    The Pruitt-Igoe Myth tells the story of the transformation of the American city in the decades after World War II, through the lens of the infamous Pruitt-Igoe housing development and the St. Louis residents who called it home.

    Directed by Chad Freidrichs.
