Gut Renovation (2012) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Gut Renovation.
Gut Renovation is Su Friedrich's epic personal essay film charting the destruction of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. After living in the neighborhood for 20 years, the filmmaker was one of many who were forced out after the city passed a rezoning plan allowing developers to build luxury condos where there were once thriving industries, working-class families, and artists. Filmed over the course of many years, Gut Renovation is a scathing portrait of one neighborhood's demolition and transformation.
