City of Trees Film Screening with Washington Parks & People and Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital

CITY OF TREES (US, 2015, 76 min.) At the height of the recession, a DC nonprofit struggles to implement an ambitious “green jobs” program that hires 150 unemployed residents to plant trees in underserved parks. With only six months until their grant money runs out, serious obstacles block their path and speak to deep rifts in the life of the city racial tensions, uneven government support, and locals who feel their voices have not been heard. But for the trainees the program represents something much more hopeful: the means to give a child a better life, a second chance after a conviction, or a path to community leadership. Directed by Brandon Kramer and produced by Lance Kramer, Meridian Hill Pictures. Discussion with filmmaker Brandon Kramer and Lance Kramer follows screening.

When: Wed Mar 23 2016 (7:00 PM – 8:30 PM)
Where: Town Hall Education Arts & Recreation Campus (THEARC), 1901 Mississippi Ave., Washington, DC 20020
Fee? no
