Filmmaker Alana Marie is making noise with her documentary film The Kinloch Doc. In this film, she investigates the once-prosperous city of Kinloch, Mo. The Kinloch Doc tells the story about Missouri’s First Black City and the impact of two political decisions. A school district merger and an airport buyout.

Those very decisions caused the ultimate demise of this all-Black suburb in St. Louis County. She dives deep and investigates the dismantling of this all-black city. RSTLNS would like to congratulate her on her success for this only beginning for her.
