CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland's foreclosure crisis is going global.

People who actually own homes Clevelanders and are struggling to stay afloat are having their lives filmed for the big screen.

A Swiss filmmaker is making a documentary that follows a group of Clevelanders in their fight to stem the tide of foreclosures.

Anderson is a community activist and the former treasurer of ESOP, which stands for Empowering and Strengthening Ohio's People.

She and others in ESOP are shown in the movie working with banks and mortgage companies to save people's homes.

The producers are flying Anderson to France next month, for the movie's debut at the Cannes Film Festival.

The movie is called "Cleveland VS. Wall Street" and you can see it later this year.
