Now We Live on Clifton

Now We Live on Clifton follows 10 year old Pam Taylor and her 12 year old brother Scott around their multiracial West Lincoln Park neighborhood. The kids worry that they'll be forced out of the neighborhood they grew up in by the gentrification following the expansion of DePaul University.

"By allowing the children to watch the world around them and talk about it, Kartemquin has managed to make the film accessible to the public at large..." — Ralph Cintron,
