The City

Directed by David Riker

At a time of unparalleled economic growth and sustained property in the US, first time director Riker audaciously offers a rare insight into the immigrant experience. Weaving together four stories of Latin American lives in New York, THE CITY eloquently reveals the hardships facing a homeless father and daughter, a garment worker, a group of beleaguered day labourers and two lonely teens miles from Mexico. THE CITY paints a moving portrait of the people livining on the flip side of Clinton’s economic miracle.
