Produced for the Great Expectations 2007 Hopes and Fears Film Competition, “Prayer for Philadelphia” is a 3 minute film that exorcises the city’s demons by calling out residents to fulfill William Penn’s bold dream to create a City of Brotherly Love. Constructed entirely from still photos (about 5,000), this film was selected as the $5K Grand Prize winner out of over two dozen entries from the Philadelphia area.

Great Expectations is a year long civic forum run by the Philadelphia Inquirer surrounding the 2007 mayoral election that is designed to create a dialogue among citizens concerning Philadelphia’s future.
