Beers, Bands, Bikes & Broke with Q&A
January 11 | 6:30pm | $10
Director Shari Due will be here in person for a Q&A screening of her new film, Beer Bands Bikes & Broke. The film is a short-film companion to Desplazado about the gentrification of the Old Town and Tres Colonias neighborhoods of Fort Collins, Colorado.
In the ecosystem of cities, artists are the aspen trees that come in after a fire, adding beauty and attraction. They thrive in Bohemian spaces and make a place cool, in turn attracting money and development, which eventually results in higher housing costs.
The musicians and artists that make Fort Collins such a great place to live find it increasingly harder to stay in Old Town where they are inspired to make art. Will musicians and artists become a casualty of the affordable housing crisis in Fort Collins?
