Join us for happy hour followed by a screening of the film Residue with writer and director Merawi Gerima. After the film we will be joined by a local housing organizer, developer and public official to have an open discussion about gentrification and the housing crisis in Washington, DC.

RESIDUE follows aspiring filmmaker Jay (Obinna Nwachukwu) returning to his childhood Washington, DC, neighborhood that has been gentrified beyond recognition. Dealing with alienation from his friends, troubled by the disappearance of his best friend, and unsure of his place in this new community, Jay confronts issues of identity, gentrification and loss.

This event will take place on Zoom and Teleparty. All attendees must have access to a Netflix account in order to Join the live screening portion of this event. New to Teleparty? Use the link below to learn how to download the browser extension.
