In The Absence' is a nine part docu-series exploring key housing issues in Memphis, Tennessee. The story is told by 80(+) people over a three year period.

 

The city of Memphis has been ravaged by disinvestment, deficit culture and outdated systems. Generational wealth was stripped away after the 2009 foreclosure crisis and in its wake a mass migration towards affordable housing stressed the marketplace. This opened up an opportunity for out of town investors and slumlords to operate unimpeded by oversight. Cash strapped and over stretched the city had to get smart about how to tackle some of our nation's deepest questions around social equality. Leaning on code enforcement and environmental court, establishing a law clinic, creating public-private partnerships and collaborating with indigenous leaders throughout the city created a pathway towards uprighting our neighborhoods and turning deficits into assets.
