We're excited to be a part of Princeton Environmental Film Festival's 10 anniversary celebration this year! CITY OF TREES will be screened on Tuesday afternoon in downtown Princeton, New Jersey and followed by Q&A with Brandon + Lance. Tickets are FREE, but it's best to be early to reserve a spot.
CITY OF TREES (2015, 76 mins)
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.
