Sunset Village Conditions Featured in Online Documentary
Craig Rothman made the six minute video about Glenview's mobile park to support the work of the North Shore Interfaith Housing Authority.
Craig Rothman, 61, of Skokie, is the director of media services at the Baha'i Temple in Wilmette. Last week, his six minute video about Glenview's mobile park went live on YouTube and features interviews with residents discussing the conditions in Sunset Village.
The North Shore Interfaith Housing Authority made it very easy for Rothman to receive a loan modification so he can do some home improvement. In return, Rothman offered his video production services as a sign of gratitude, and the organization asked him to raise awarenss about Sunset Village.
He completed the project over a weekend.
"I hope the video was informative so anyone who sees it knows that housing rights are being jeopardized," Rothman said. "So many people go through life and don't respond to the calls of those who are struggling. I tried to put a human face on the issues."
