Demolition Dreaming Screening

Demolition Dreaming is a short animated feature about change in the Gateway District of Minneapolis. The ‘Gateway’ was an area of downtown completely destroyed under the auspices of federal urban renewal efforts in the 1950s and 1960s. The feature tells the story of a family and the hotel they run on Hennepin Avenue. We see what happens to their world, their neighbors and community as the wrecking ball of change topples the buildings they occupy and carts the detritus of this destruction to the quarry where a suburban style shopping center now stands.
