What People Are Saying

Van Jones, CNN commentator
founder, Magic Labs Media

CITY OF TREES is honest. It is real. It explores the messy truths embedded in all fights for environmental and social justice...most importantly: the film respects the viewer's intelligence. It leaves room for interpretation. It remains open for diverse audiences to engage with the many paradoxes it explores. CITY OF TREES is a rare, people-centered, non-partisan story that captures the gut-wrenching, heartbreaking contradictions as they play out at the grassroots level."


Patty Fugere

Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless

“MHP honored the importance and the impact of the voices of our clients. They were deeply committed to helping the community members tell their stories, in their own words. They listened, they were responsive, and they truly were a joy to work with.”

American University School of Communication

"CITY OF TREES is a richly nuanced, well-told story at the intersection of environmental, economic, cultural and racial concerns; this is the film to challenge anyone bringing one-dimensional solutions to urban development...anyone interested in the complex challenges of "helping others" will find deep insights in this parable of human aspiration."
