Please join us for a screening of Los Sures by director Diego Echeverria.

Produced in 1984, the film, which documents neighborhood life in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is an important record of the history of New York City and the communities of students we teach. The film is a complex and sensitive portrait of the everyday lives of Puerto Ricans and Dominicans living on the Southside of Williamsburg in the days before gentrification.
