Doors open at 5:30 p.m. film starts at 6 p.m.

According to a description on Snag Films website:

LOOKING TOWARD HOME is a one-hour documentary which explains how government relocation programs in the 1950’s enticed significant numbers of Native Americans to leave the reservation for life in major cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and the San Francisco Bay Area. The life and times of urban Indians is shown primarily through the eyes of these individuals and subsequent generations as they maintain their tribal identity far away from the culturally nurturing climate of the reservation.
