"America Street," a documentary exploring issues facing Charleston's East Side community, is available for free through June 9.
Filmmaker Idrissou Mora-Kpai wanted to make it accessible to everyone as a means of providing education and historical context to the current national protests against police brutality and racial inequality.
"I think the film is timely and addresses a lot of the important questions the recent killings have once more raised," Mora-Kpai said.
The film addresses issues facing the East Side neighborhood, including gentrification and displacement. and the community efforts to preserve and improve the 250-year-old downtown Charleston neighborhood formerly known as Hampstead Village.
"America Street" was filmed in 2015 when Mora-Kpai and his wife, Jeanette Jouili, were living in Charleston.
The film can be streamed now at cinemapolis.org/film/america-street.
