In the tradition of neorealist films like Vittorio De Sica's The Bicycle Thief comes an American film (in Spanish) about Latin-American immigrants living in New York City. La Ciudad, which was screened in the American Spectrum series at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, was directed by David Riker, who spent five years researching the project and working with the non-professional actors in the film to capture the impoverished authenticity of life on the streets in New York's Latino community.

These four portraits of poor Latin American immigrants living in New York City draw out our fury over the large gap between the haves and the have-nots in America.
it is the absence of any kind of inner force in the film that disturbs me more than its morbid subject matter
A haunting, compassionate look at the day-to-day lives of all too many New Yorkers.
