Director: Jon M. Chu

Synopsis: Explore three days in the New York City Dominican-American neighborhood of Washington Heights from Tony Award-winners Lin-Manuel Miranda and Qiara Alegria Hudes.

Why Open: The Latinx and Asian communities are the two most frequent movie-going populations in the country. Moreover, our struggles are highly concentric: we have the highest rate of immigration and multigenerational households of any group in the United States, creating multiple identities. And, while this may be out of turn to say, this feels like the Latinx community’s Crazy Rich Asians moment; we all know what that did for us–so let’s help ensure it for another deserving community.
