Four vignettes depict the struggles of recent Latino immigrants to construct new lives away from their families and homelands in a city where they are often either ignored or exploited. Shot over six years on location in New York City, this exquisite and powerful black and white film recalls the best of Italian neo-realism. Recent digital restoration! Subtitled. Cosponsored with the Dept of Romance Studies. More at laciudad.vhx.tv/
