Documentaries. I Choose to Stay Here

I choose to stay here. This documentary follows a group of people opposing the city of Philadelphia's "takings" of private homes: the little-known downside of the city's "redevelopment" initiative. "I choose to stay here" shows people fighting city hall for the right to define and preserve viable communities, and tracks their struggle for justice. The video is a collaboration between the Community Leadership Institute, the Philadelphia Folklore Project and filmmaker Barry Dornfeld. Directed by Rosemary Cubas, Barry Dornfeld, Debora Kodish, Elizabeth Segarra and Iris Torres. 23 minutes. 2004. $15 for individuals and $50 for institutions from the PFP or CLI for VHS (0-9644937-7-2) or DVD (0-9644937-5-6).
