Last weekend Webster University School of Communications film directing alumnus Phillip Andrew Morton (’02) was profiled in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about his upcoming documentary, “Spanish Lake,” examining the controversial transformation of the unincorporated community north St. Louis County marked by abandoned post-World War II homes and Section 8 housing.

    Excellent article in Post Dispatch, and great trailer. I, too, watched the decline of this area, after living there 43 years. A very sad situation.
