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.

In Karachi, Pakistan, a boy's life hangs on one critical question: where is home? First-time filmmakers Mullick and Tariq trace the friendship between Omar, an orphaned toughie, and Asad, an ambulance driver who unites runaways with families by night, and delivers bodies to the morgue by day. This hopeful, beautifully filmed documentary allows audiences to live calmly among those touched by strife and poverty.
