A crowd of locals gathered at FREIGHT Monday night for a screening of “A Decent Home,” a documentary film by Sara Terry that follows the lives of manufactured home residents throughout the country.

The film looks specifically at manufactured home communities that have gone up for sale. Residents of such communities might own their homes, but not the land beneath them, meaning that when property owners decide to sell, families can be – and have been – displaced from their homes.
