Movie Screening: The Price of Renewal

What are the challenges of crafting a vibrant urban village from an ethnically, culturally, and economically diverse population? This perceptive documentary examines issues of community development, philanthropy, and civic engagement by chronicling the long-term redevelopment of the once-deteriorating neighborhood of City Heights, often referred to as the Ellis Island of San Diego. Here we find patters of immigration, migration, and gentrification common to many American cities. Using character-based stories, we explore the extraordinary efforts of many individuals and organizations struggling to revitalize an inner city neighborhood through a partnership between public and private entities.

Join us for a debrief after the film and Q&A with special guest & resident leader featured in the film.

Light dinner will be provided.
