Are you interested in the history of H Street? Do you like outdoor movies? Perfect! You will not want to miss a free outdoor screening of the new documentary Heal H Street. Info after the jump.

Craig Corl is just completing his Masters Thesis in New Media Photojournalism at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. Craig has produced a short documentary titled “Heal H Street.” His thesis topic focuses on the neighborhoods surround H Street and the personal impacts of neighborhood decline and gentrification following the 1968 riots. This documentary begins with the 1968 riots with stories from people who witnessed the events. The story continues with the decline of H Street and the personal impacts of ongoing resurgence. You will find this short film (17 minutes) informative, engaging, and emotionally moving. And best of all, you need only show up. Craig will be projecting the film on the Sherwood Community Center (walking track side) at 9pm on April 22nd. There is no cost.

I'm doing trivia at Biergarten Haus that evening, but how can I nab a copy or see it at a later date? Any chance he'll post the doc online? I'd love to see it.
