Still from Locked Out film, set in Detroit.
"Locked Out" tells the heartbreaking stories of low-income Detroiters who've lost their homes to foreclosure.

A new documentary film about the Detroit housing crisis, titled Locked Out, recently premiered at the 2023 Freep Film Festival.

According to the film's producers, nothing symbolizes "making it in America" quite like owning a home. Yet today, the racial gap in home ownership is widening, and those most impacted are women of color.

Directed by Kate Davis and Luchina Fisher, Locked Out examines the work of UCHC and takes viewers into the lives of courageous Black women who face evictions, predatory lenders, and traditional banking as they become ground fighters in the movement against modern-day redlining and housing injustice.
