Monday on Lake Effect: Lead Crisis, Zilber Neighborhood Initiative, The Year in Film,

Jan 28, 2019

Monday on Lake Effect:

Michigan journalist Anna Clark has a new book on the lead crisis in Flint, and compares Milwaukee's lead problems with what Flint faced. Then, ten years ago, a huge investment called the Zilber Neighborhood Initiative was launched in three Milwaukee neighborhoods. What is the legacy of that work, a decade on? And our film contributors look back at the last 12 months’ worth of cinema and try to figure out the overarching trends.
