WHERE: Literacy Council of Northern Virginia, 2855 Annandale Rd, Falls Church, VA 22042 

In celebration of National Volunteer Week, LCNV will host a screening of The City (La Ciudad), followed by a group discussion with staff and your fellow volunteers. Pizza and refreshments will be provided. RSVP to info@lcnv.org.

MOVIE SYNOPSIS: The City (La Ciudad) presents four vignettes depicting the struggles of Latin American immigrants in New York City. Beautifully shot in black and white, the separate stories – “Bricks,” “Home,” “The Puppeteer,” and “Seamstress” – are connected by images from a studio photographer shooting portraits of the people in his community. The City (La Ciudad) tells stories of loss, love, frustration, and hope as four people recently arrived in a large city struggle to build their lives, communities, and dreams.
