In conjunction with the Hacienda Heights Art+Film Lab presented by LACMA, watch a diverse selection of outdoor films—Hollywood classics, independents, and international films that are sure to capture your imagination. All screenings take place in the multipurpose room of the Steinmetz Senior Center.

Film director Sebastian and film producer Costa enter Bolivia hell-bent on creating a low-budget, revisionist film about the conquest of Latin America. Exploiting locals to play the natives, the filmmakers find themselves in a moral dilemma when real-life political violence erupts over water privatization—where even rain water will no longer belong to the commons. Even the Rain captures in dramatic fashion the struggle between the dispossessed and the forces of global capitalism.
