Director Chad Freidrichs' searing documenatry The Pruitt-Igoe Myth: An Urban History, which chronicles the rise and tragic fall of the notorious Pruitt-Igoe housing project in St. Louis, arrives on DVD on May 15th from First Run Features.

Completed in 1955, the housing project was seen back then as the new frontier in urban planning,  the cutting edge future for all housing developments in American cities everywhere

But crime, neglect, unemployment, bad policies and a muddled headed, stifling bureaucracy turned the project, in less the 20 years, into a hell hole that had to be literally raised to the ground by dynamite to be put out of its misery.

Here's the trailer:
