Los Angeles: 'At Home in Utopia,' April 27

For former New Yorkers, 'At Home in Utopia' may shed light on details of our families' lives.

The film tells the story of the United Workers Cooperative Colony, a housing cooperative in the Bronx organized by poor Jewish immigrants in the 1920s.

It will be screened at 7.30pm, Monday, April 27, at Laemmle's Music Hall Theatre, 9036 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, as part of the LA Jewish Film Festival.

A panel discussion, moderated by Occidental College professor of politics Peter Dreier, will follow and includes filmmaker Michal Goldman, PJA Executive Director Elissa Barrett and Hershl Hartman, a child of the Colony and education director of the Sholem Community.

Tickets are $9 (seniors, students), $12 (adults).
