Summary
With ... intensive collaboration with the New York Latino immigrant community over a five-year period, The City [La Ciudad] weaves a rich narrative tapestry of present day immigrant life. The film's four unforgettable stories center on a group of day-laborers scavenging for bricks; two teenagers from the same hometown who meet in the projects and fall in love; a homeless father who tries to enroll his daughter in school; and a garment worker who seeks justice in the sweatshops
