The film, which won 2011 John E. O’Connor Film Award of the American Historical Association for outstanding interpretation of history, features Professor of Architecture and Urban and Regional Planning, Robert Fishman.

The film screening will be followed by a roundtable discussion with director Chad Freidrichs and Robert Fishman, sponsored by the Metropolitan History Workshop.
