These are the faces of Latin American immigrants in the United States.

THE CITY (LA CIUDAD) tells stories of loss, love, frustration, and hope as four people recently arrived in a large city struggle to build their lives, their communities and their dreams.

Filmmaker David Riker's sensitive portrayals urge us to take a closer look at today's immigrants, who are not so different from many of our ancestors when they first arrived from a foreign land.
