Share the Earth Environmental Film Series – City of Trees

September 21, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

THIS IS A FREE SCREENING!

MILWAUKEE PREMIERE!

FOLLOWED BY A POST-FILM DISCUSSION

City of Trees portrays the struggles of a DC non-profit to challenge the cycle of poverty and violence in blighted urban areas by implementing an ambitious “green jobs” program that hires 150 unemployed residents to plant trees in underserved parks. What sounds like a simple goal — putting people back to work by planting trees in a blighted neighborhood — becomes complicated by local racial tensions, a community’s entrenched distrust of outsiders, and a fast-approaching deadline before the grant money runs out.

Cosponsored by Student Involvement and Sociocultural Programming

(Brandon Kramer, USA, English, 76 minutes, 2015)
