  • Must see documentary about Spanish Lake, MO.

“Spanish Lake is a 2014 American documentary film directed by Phillip Andrew Morton and co-produced by Phillip Andrew Morton and Matt Jordan Smith. The film premiered theatrically in St. Louis, Missouri on June 13, 2014.[1] The documentary chronicles the area of Spanish Lake, Missouri and its transformation from a 1950s white suburb to a mostly black population through a process known as white flight. The themes of the film parallel America’s growing political divide, underlying racism, and rise of anti-government sentiment.”  From Wikipedia


 

Now keep in mind that a lot of Spanish Lake is still lovely! This film focuses on the problems with large apartment complexes and surrounding neighborhoods. I drive through Spanish Lake for two of my exciting listings: Harris Armstrong-design House on the River & Coal Bank Rd Estate w/ 13+ acres
