    Oyler: One School, One Year Can a school save a community? This documentary asks just that, telling the story of a Cincinnati public school fighting to break the cycle of poverty. The neighborhood is urban Appalachian - an insular community with roots in the coal mining towns of Kentucky and West Virginia.
    Before 2006, very few teens from Lower Price Hill finished high school, much less went to college. The local Oyler School only went through 8th grade. After that, rather than ride the bus out of the neighborhood for high school, most kids dropped out. < br>Under long-time Principal Craig Hockenberry's leadership, Oyler School is part of the growing community schools movement. The school has transformed into a "community learning center," where it serves students from preschool through 12th grade, and is open year-round, from early morning until late at night. It has become a one-stop-shop for its students and their families, combining academic, health and social services under one roof.
    Based on the award-winning Marketplace radio series "One School, One Year," this film takes viewers through a year at the school, focusing on Hockenberry's mission to transform a community and on senior Raven Gribbins' quest to be the first in her troubled family to finish high school and go to college. When Hockenberry's job is threatened, it becomes clear it's a make-or-break year for both of them.

    America Reframed [#502] 70 Acres In Chicago Twenty-years in the making, 70 Acres in Chicago tells the story of the Cabrini Green public housing development located on the most hotly contested 70 acres of land in Chicago. With its prime central location, Cabrini Green was initially hailed as a public housing triumph, then later demonized as an urban disaster. It was demolished over a period of 15 years beginning in 1995, and repackaged as a "mixed income" development. Critics contend that the motivation was economic gain, as public housing's prime real estate became too valuable for the low-income Black communities that once lived there. The few Cabrini residents who were able to move into the highly regulated mixed income settlement are negotiating through difficult cultural territory. Encounters between the former Cabrini residents and the new white middle-class homeowners comprise the very real tensions of a newly constructed community in transition. 70 Acres in Chicago tells the volatile story of these 70 acres, while looking unflinchingly at race, class, and who has the right to live in the city. The film uses personal stories, expert commentary, and informative history to celebrate the spirit of a unique community and to mourn its betrayal and destruction. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
