Village East Cinema: Q&A with director Courtney Moorehead Balaker and Susette Kelo Friday 4/20 following the 7:00pm show


A small-town nurse, Susette, emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests in Courtney Moorehead Balaker's LITTLE PINK HOUSE. Susette's battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court, and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse. However, over time politicians' love of power reasserted itself, and so did eminent domain abuse.
