A PARCEL OF LAND: FILMS BY URBAN DWELLERS

The urban environment as we know is a continuous ever changing phenomenon. It is planned and formed of the tangible and intangible. We shape it as much as it shapes us. Is there anyway to experience every inch of what has been created so far? Possibly not. But join us for a night of short films about some of the urban spaces around us by local urban dwellers. Films presented tonight include work by Eliza Jimenez, Dominick Ortiz, Gemma Jimenez Gonzalez, Monica Juarez, Nicole Ucedo, and Thea Rhodes.
