Reel Life Cinema: "Brick by Chance and Fortune: The Story of Brick in St. Louis"

Filmmaker Bill Streeter chronicles the rich history of St. Louis as both producer and user of a building material that's as lovely as it is sturdy. Once a major player in the U.S. brick-making industry, St. Louis still boasts countless brick houses, from bungalows to mansions, and this documentary illustrates the diversity and beauty of the city's striking brick edifices, an often-ignored aspect of the city's urban landscape.
