City of Trees is a deeply personal story about the struggle for good jobs and environmental justice in our cities. During the recession, the documentary follows three trainees and the director of a stimulus-funded green job-training program designed to put unemployed people back to work by caring for parks in DC. As they navigate the community’s 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 every day. In October, Lance Kramer won Best Director at the 2016 IndieCapitol Awards.

"Focusing on the struggles of managing a non-profit organization while simultaneously seeking to implement a local park's beautification and the empowerment of its neighboring citizens, this handsomely shot story makes its viewers intimate observers of the emotional journeys experienced by both the project leaders and the hired staff who passionately grab at this opportunity to improve their lives." — Chris Haley, Director of the Study of the Legacy of Slavery in Maryland, Maryland State Archives
