"Gentrification is what has helped us to re-imagine the story because Cabrini-Green is gone," the film's director Nia DaCosta, according to Deadline. "The film of the '90 has a vision of Cabrini-Green, where it is a kind of on the way to be shot down."

"What's spoken in the film are the ghosts that have been left behind because of gentrification," DaCosta added.
