The UNM Prevention Research Center is hosting a Rio Grande Institute - Exploring Cultural Diversity through Film Series, titled, "La Ciudad." The film will be shown Tuesday, March 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the UNM Prevention Research Center located at 2703 Frontier NE.

The film is a compelling depiction of the often brutal challenges and contradictions faced by immigrants who attempt to make a living and create a life for themselves and their families in New York City.

A discussion following the film will focus on understanding how the perspectives that emerge from the experiences of the characters can inform our work with diverse communities.
