Directions

Liberty Warehouse (working title) captures a working class, southern city struggling to hold onto its soul as pioneering artist studios, craft breweries, gourmet restaurants, and tech start-ups pave the way for hundreds of apartment/condo developments and chain stores to rise up around the once-gritty urban core. This half-hour documentary film explores the conversion of one historic tobacco warehouse in Durham, North Carolina, into a mixed-use development (apartments above retail) and the rapid-fire change in both the skyline and the demographics resulting from this “progress.”
