SPANISH LAKE, A Banned Documentary on Race, Class and White Flight

Standard

By TheLip.TV

Coming on the heels of the racial tensions in Ferguson, Missouri following the shooting death of Michael Brown, the director of a new documentary about race, class and white flight in a nearby community discusses the making of ‘Spanish Lake.’

The bold and uncompromising documentary – directed by Philip Andrew Morton and produced by Matt Smith – focuses on economic oppression in the suburb of Spanish Lake, Missouri, which is located just eight miles from Ferguson.

The film reveals how a lack of local government and community leadership has disastrous effects on the community, including a mass exodus of the white population in the late 1990′s.

The themes of the film parallel America’s growing political divide, underlying racism, and a rise in anti-government sentiment.
