A thought-provoking dramatic web series
The vision for Gentrified started with the creator, Tia Williams, after she saw her birthplace, Austin, rapidly change and become almost unrecognizable. Though economically vibrant, the city had begun to lose its flavor and leave those that helped it become colorful behind. Many residents didn’t share in its new abundance, and rising costs have led them to leave homes occupied for generations. (Homes on the east side of town, the area they were relegated to begin with). Tia began to wonder how she could utilize her craft to bring light to the issue and decided to put pen to paper.
Gentrified will premiere on Saturday, November 30th in Austin TX. Get tickets here!
