From Academy Award–nominee Chris Weitz, the director of About a Boy, comes the new drama A Better Life, a touching, poignant, multi-generational story about a father's love and the lengths a parent will go to give his child the opportunities he never had.
 
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Paley Center and AFTRA present this look at the unique thematic relationship between the acclaimed film and its stunning music video, directed by Reyes Rodriguez, featuring the song "Jardinero" by celebrated Los Angeles culture-mashers and recording artists Ozomatli

Join Chris Weitz, Reyes Rodriguez, members of Ozomatli, and others for a lively conversation about their dynamic creative collaboration. 

A limited number of free tickets are available to Members, but RSVPs are required.
