The film mimics reality in explaining how streetcars in cities were torn up, burned, and replaced by buses and cars through the dismantling of public transportation systems by private companies who stood to profit from an auto-centric transportation system and freeway infrastructure.
This is a great movie and I encourage all of you to attend this screening and discussion.
