The Mill Creek Community Partnership (MCCP) under its Fine Art Through Our Eyes (F.A.T.O.E) Community Initiative along with Eli Lu Productions producedThe Mill Creek Documentary: Past, Present and Future as Part I of its Urban Preservation Outreach Initiatives. The film documents the Mill Creek Community during the 20th Century to date through personal interviews of residents, local organizations and businesses, and various community members. The film discusses issues such as poverty, blight, crime and drugs that once plagued the community in the 1980’s. It also focuses on preserving Mill Creek’s history and revitalization efforts to build up the Community. The goal of this film is to serve as an outlet and resource to document, preserve, engage, inform, empower, heal, and inspire the Mill Creek community. The project was made possible through the generous support of The Preservation Alliance of Greater Philadelphia. Filmed, Edited and produced by Philadelphia filmmakers, Jean “Lu” Bevins and Joyce “Eli” Bevins of Eli Lu Productions.
