A documentary in progress by Vivian Vazquez, Gretchen Hildebran and Julia Steele Allen.

“DECADE OF FIRE” got a Kickstart – now it’s full steam ahead!

Back in 2011, DECADE OF FIRE was catapulted ahead thanks to the generosity and support of 162 backers on Kickstarter.  Raising over $16,000 to go towards production costs, Kickstarter allowed the film to shoot key footage in 2011 and 2012 –  most recently interviews with block defender Hetty Fox and original Bronx organizer Mili Bonilla (South Bronx People for Change, Mothers on the Move).

The film’s production team is now focused on creating a rough cut out of our 80+ hours of interviews, archival and footage from today’s Bronx.  Check in here for more updates on the film coming soon!
