For all who made it to the Gensler screening event in downtown last August 1st (Thursday), many thanks for sitting through the event and to stay around for the Q&A sessions. I would like to especially thank Jaymes Dunsmore of Gensler to put Broad Minded City into Gensler’s film series. It was a good event and gain a lot of insight from the people who are part of the film, Eric Lloyd Wright, Louis Wiehle, Ken Bernstein, myself and a special comment by Refugio Ceballos “Cuco” telling about the concern of a young girl from Canada who tell that she is frighten about the future because the lack of nature in cities. Cuco’s comment brought a few more people into the audience during his speech. He brought a sense of realism to the conversation.
While some of the people that were mentioned in the previous post weren’t able to make it because the conflict of schedules and travel time to get to Gensler’s office in Downtown LA, overall it was a success. It is a start to bring Broad Minded City to the masses. I would also like to thank Daniel Skolnick and Debbie Gloria for showing up for the event, even though both were hanging in the background, hopefully for the next screening event, both and other future guest for any screening event will bring another perspective of Broadacre City, Los Angeles and any other cities dealing with ever growing population, identity and the environment.
