Brick by Chance and Fortune-A St. Louis Story

St. Louis is a city with a rich heritage of brick architecture. Home to some of the largest and most innovative clay working companies of the nineteenth century, you can still see some of the finest examples of brick work ever produced all over the city and region. Today the city’s brick heritage is under threat by neglect, brick theft, and urban renewal.

Fascinating stories produced by local filmmakers and introduced to us through HEC-TV's partnership with University City's Commission for Local Origination Programming (CALOP). Different hosts interview each of the filmmakers and their films are shown in their entirety.
