Frank Rizzo: The Unmaking of a Monument and Mural

    Documentary on Philadelphia’s Frank Rizzo memorials in the aftermath of their removal.

    As the national push to remove Confederate monuments escalated in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, Philadelphia grappled with a more recent set of public memorials. This half hour documentary reflects on the controversial Frank Rizzo monument and mural in the aftermath of their removal in June 2020.

    Interviews include artists and public art stakeholders who were directly involved with – and affected by – the polarizing statue and mural.
