A note from the host, NationBuilder's VP of Film Laura Harris:
In the late 1990s, I was living on the lower east side of Manhattan. On hot summer nights my friends and I would gather in “secret garden” empty lots in Alphabet City to watch films projected onto the walls of adjoined buildings. These spontaneous gatherings became some of our most treasured neighbourhood memories.
In tribute to those unforgettable community nights, please join us for our inaugural Backyard Movie Night in Highland Park, Los Angeles, where we will be screening renowned artist Ai Weiwei's film Human Flow. Filmed in twenty three countries over the course of a year, this epic documentary will take us on a journey into the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal impact.
