Documentary producer Dan Swank presents the official trailer for his capstone project, “Re-Stripped.”
The Strip District has primarily been known as a daytime spot for visitors. Leading up until now, little residence life was made available and the atmosphere in the evenings were all but barren. With the arrival of a brand new Apple office and over 300 apartment units being prepared, the Strip’s identity will ultimately change into something completely fresh – but will this lead to gentrification? Kicking small businesses and lower class families to the curb? My hope for this story is that I’ll be able to grasp viewer’s interests by documenting the effects that a major transformation may cause for lifetime strip business owners and residents.
Swank’s completed will premiere on December 3 at the 2016 Westminster Documentary Showcase.
