The Luminal Theater presents the film Decade of Fire.

Throughout the 1970s, fires consumed the South Bronx. Black and Puerto Rican residents were blamed for the devastation even as they battled daily to save their neighborhoods. In Decade of Fire, Bronx-born Vivian Vázquez Irizarry pursues the truth surrounding the fires, uncovering policies of racism and neglect that still shape our cities, and offering hope to communities on the brink today.

Garden gates open at 7:30 p.m., film begins at sundown. Short Q&A with the film's producers will follow.

Go to Luminal Theater's Events page on their website to RSVP for this important screening.
