Welcome to The Garden City film

Our Kickstarter

What does it mean to be an American?

 America is embroiled in struggle over that central question. Garden City aims to tell the stories of those coming to America, what made them leave their homes, what makes them love Garden City, and what makes Garden City so unique.


We’re raising money on Kickstarter to give this film the best finish we can, and we need your help to do it! Take a look at our Kickstarter here!
