Foreclosures. Unemployment. Childhood poverty. All these problems have hit American cities hard since the Great Recession. Gaining Ground, a follow-up to the award-winning documentary Holding Ground (1996), shows how one diverse Boston neighborhood working together has stemmed the tide against enormous odds.
In collaboration with the Rosamond Gifford Foundation, ArtRage Gallery will screen films depicting community efforts to improve their communities and the world. The spring series of three films runs thru May 2014. Films were selected by a committee of community members and are shown twice on different weekdays followed by a facilitated discussion. All films are free to the public. No reservation is required.
Doors Open at 6pm for Gallery Gazing and Refreshments. Film begins at 6:30pm.
