Join us for this FREE event – the first public screening of the documentary The New Haven Green: Heart of a City. This film was funded by The Garden Club of New Haven, Inc. and the Committee of the Proprietors of the Common and Undivided Lands in New Haven. It was written, directed, and produced by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Karyl Evans and narrated by New Haven native and award-winning actor Paul Giamatti. The film reveals fascinating historical narratives and little known facts about the Green. A treasure of rarely seen archival photographs, paintings, and and hand-colored engravings, along with interviews and an original score bring the history of the New Haven Green to life.
