About “Redevelopment: A Marxist Analysis”:
Redevelopment is the result of a three year collaboration [1971-1974] between the Resolution film group and a number of community groups struggling to save their home and neighborhoods from “urban renewal”. In San Francisco, as in most other cities, “urban renewal” means destroying minority and working class neighborhoods and building lucrative luxury developments. As usual, the key government people have been bought and paid for by the big developers.
A series of short films on particular local problems were done by the community people themselves, with training and research help provided by Resolution. Then, for a two year period, these were used as an aid to local organizing efforts. The criticisms and suggestions of P.T.A.’s, labor groups, block clubs, and grass roots groups of all sorts served to sharpen our ideas and analysis. These films were then combined, with broader structuring materials, into the film Redevelopment.
