From the Burg to the Barrio
What happens when a beloved urban community changes? From the Burg to the Barrio shows an ethnic neighborhood in transition, with all the tensions and contrasts as different cultures meet. The hambersburg section of Trenton NJ (the ’Burg) has long been known as a working-class neighborhood where Italian families live in close proximity to Italian businesses. Today, the ’Burg still attracts newly-arrived immigrant families, but from Central and Latin American countries. [2012, US, Runtime: 45 min, in English and Spanish with English subtitles, Not rated]

Pieces of Tangier
Pieces of Tangier explores Tangier Island, Virginia, a remote watermen’s community founded in the 1600s. The 450 people living there are fighting to preserve their way of life against the triple threat of government regulations, population decline, and erosion. Tangier Island’s political and environmental changes could lead to its inhabitants having to make the tough decision to move off the Island onto the mainland. [2013, US, Runtime: 45 min, Not rated]
Speaker: Director Jenny Roberts will be available for a post-screening discussion.
