During the recession, CITY OF TREES follows three trainees and the director of a stimulus-funded green job-training program designed to put unemployed people back to work by planting trees in DC. As they navigate the community’s entrenched distrust of outsiders and a fast-approaching deadline before the grant money runs out, CITY OF TREES thrusts viewers into the inspiring but messy world of job training and the paradoxes changemakers face in urban communities. (USA, 2015, 76 min.)
