The Moving Picture Boys

Saint Cloud Hill

In a hidden forested encampment downtown, a self-governed tent community unravels as the city moves in to reclaim the land.

Evolved from the dozens of short docs in the Nashville Docujournal series, this story takes a deeper look into displacement and gentrification in a rapidly growing Southern city. Locally shot by filmmakers living in the same neighborhood as the people and events, the resulting film is both intimate and complex.

This feature length documentary is in post-production. Sponsored by Southern Documentary Fund.
