A screening of City of Trees followed by discussion with the filmmakers. Refreshments will be provided. Presented by the Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service (serve.gwu.edu).
During the recession, CITY OF TREES follows three trainees and the directors of a stimulus-funded green job-training program designed to put unemployed people back to work by caring for parks in DC. As they navigate community tensions and a fast-approaching deadline before the grant money runs out, CITY OF TREES thrusts viewers into the inspiring but messy world of job training and the paradoxes changemakers face in urban communities everyday.
