More Than One Thing

The short film More Than One Thing was filmed in 1968 and 1969 by director Steve Carver, then a graduate student at Washington University. The film explores the daily life of Billy Towns, a teenager living in the Pruitt-Igoe housing project.

In the film, viewers learn about the joys, hopes, and dreams of a young Pruitt-Igoe resident in a story that often contrasts the stereotypically negative Pruitt-Igoe image that has defined the housing development over the decades.
