2 Miles Unchanged” is a documentary film examining the unflattering history of a two mile stretch of road on Cleveland’s near westside called Train Avenue. The illegal garbage dumping. The violent crime. The dead dogs. The issues surrounding Train Avenue are complex, and the solutions to fix them are even more complicated. But, one thing is clear, Train Avenue – as we know it today, has existed for approximately 120 years virtually unchanged.


The Past

The birth of Train Avenue was founded by city officials on the idea to solve a growing problem in the mid-late 1800s when nearby industry – slaughterhouses, breweries and other manufacturing operations, heavily polluted a stream of water called Walworth Run by dumping their waste into it, which connected right into the Cuyahoga River.

The Present

Once Walworth Run was buried and turned into part of the city’s sewer system in the early 1900s, the two mile stretch of land was paved and named Train Avenue, where it faced new issues of pollution – becoming the place for illegal dumping and other nefarious acts against human beings, animals and the environment.

The future

Although the problems on Train Avenue persist and have been mostly unchanged since its birth 120 years ago, there have been several attempts to change the culture that regularly occurs there, sadly to no avail. The hope is this documentary project sparks an interest in reinvestment to finally solving over a century of status quo.

Independent film is just that – a film without a major studio attached, and its financial influence to determine the success of the project. So, Indie Filmmakers take on an enormous task with the time and financial investment making a film requires to see it through to the end and hopefully achieve the intended purpose.

The projects I commit to are films that serve a purpose, typically for the betterment of the human race, animals – both wild and domestic, as well as for the environment and planet, with hopes to inspire the general public into action.
