Premiere: "Providence Lost"

  • RISD Museum Theater 20 North Main Street Providence, RI, 02903 United States (map)

A screening of a short film, followed by a panel and public conversation about evictions and policy solutions.

"Providence Lost," a short nonfiction film, follows a family undergoing an eviction and their subsequent search for a new home. In 2018, the Trottiers were one of more than 13,000 households to be evicted in Rhode Island. Their struggle against soaring rents and a dysfunctional safety net is shared by a majority of renters across the state. This portrait of a city divided, caught between the promise of glamorous development and the reality of our current housing crisis, forces us to reckon with the human cost of change, and asks us to imagine the possibility of a city for all.
