silver spring civic building: the movie

Friend of JUTP Kathy Jentz sent us this documentary shot by her friend and Takoma Park resident Susan Harris about the new Silver Spring Civic Building, which is set to open at the corner of Ellsworth Drive and Fenton Street this July. The video features none other than Reemberto Rodriguez, director of the Silver Spring Regional Services Center (colloquially called the "Mayor of Silver Spring") and some lovely renderings of the Civic Building, which are already starting to come to life.

Harris co-produced the clip with Mario Starks at Docs in Progress, a non-profit group that teaches documentary filmmaking. Docs in Progress hosts a variety of workshops and screenings, including a free one this Saturday of American Feud, exploring the tensions between liberals and conservatives in the United States. That screening starts at 7pm at Docs in Progress' offices, located at 8700 First Avenue near Fenwick Lane.

Attendance is limited to just twenty people ("to allow for an intimate discussion"), so if you can't squeeze in, check out the video above.
