 It will be followed by another movie about  public, art, impermanence and , progress and gentrification called “Paris Tower.”
“ Usually it would be a public screening, but because of the pandemic, we aren’t able to. so it will be a virtual presentation,” said Allied Arts Council communications director, Kelaine Devine.
