Wall Street Without Walls (WSWW), HNBA and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) are
hosting a film screening and happy hour highlighting Hispanic homeownership issues.

The film "Los SueÃ±os de AngÃ©lica" (in Spanish with English subtitles) is the moving
story of an immigrant couple from Latin America, AngÃ©lica and Roberto, who are
discussing whether to return to their home country or stay in the United States. With an
unexpected event, everything changes and the couple is faced with the difficult realization
that one of them will have to sacrifice their dream for the other. Boldly mixing
documentary and fiction, telenovela and comedy, the film's main characters interact in
butcher shops, construction sites, churches, music festivals, bars and real estate offices.
There are no guns, no drug dealers, no gang members, no gratuitous violence or foul
language, only the turbulent, unexpectedly humorous lives of everyday people struggling
to enter the mainstream of American society. The film was produced by the Latino
Community Credit Union and Rodrigo Dorfman with a grant from the CDFI Fund. Speakers
include Wayne A. Marsden, Senior Advisor, Wall Street Without Walls ITIN Mortgage
Initiative, Lautaro Diaz, VP Community Development, NCLR, and Liz Lopez, Regional
President, HNBA. Questions: Marcella Harshbarger at WSWW 202-375-7763.
