Providing unique perspectives on the history of Los Angeles, the fight for housing justice, and the impact of urban renewal policies, the digital exhibition features a hologram of a residential hotel at 240 South Figueroa on Bunker Hill, a building that housed hundreds of working families from around the world. The exhibition also includes an immersive VR representation of the neighborhood before it was demolished, highlighting the urgency of the current struggle for housing in Los Angeles.

Ray Stark Family Theatre (SCA)

April 24 / 6:00 p.m.

The USC Dornsife Center for the Political Future invites you to join a screening of True False, Hot Cold on Wednesday, April 24 at 6 p.m. in the Stark Cinema Theatre. This award-winning documentary is centered around climate change, belief, and civil discourse. It was filmed in Utah over the course of one summer in a county where many residents don’t believe in climate change. Instead of focusing on divisions, the documentary offers ideas about building bridges with people who have very different identities and beliefs.

During this event we will discuss Ed Yong’s An Immense World for a deep dive into storytelling as a way to communicate, move minds and hearts, and inspire action on issues related to the environment and climate.
