Decade of Fire by Vivian Vazquez, Gretchen Hildebran, Julia Steele Allen and Neyda Martinez

As cities today struggle with gentrification and social inequity, Decade of Fire offers an intimate historic portrait of the burning of the Bronx in the 1970’s, transcending era and geography. Set against irrefutably insurmountable odds, and told from the perspectives of the people who survived it, the film’s heroes demonstrate the lengths to which everyday people will go to save their communities; in this case – defending and rebuilding their neighborhoods with their bare hands.

Decade of Fire is a 2018 recipient of Working Films’ Impact Kickstart award, which includes in-kind impact campaign strategy development.
