The Venice Syndrome. Washington D.C. Premiere Venice is sinking under the weight of more than 21 million tourists per year—and it’s losing its residents along the way. Today, only around 60,000 people live there, less than half as many as 20 years ago. According to one study, there will be no more Venetians by the year 2030. Andreas Pichler’s revelatory andcompassionate documentary is squarely on the side of the locals as they use humor and heart to copewith unconcerned governments, oblivious day-tourists and the disastrous crumbling of a way of life. Directed by Andreas Pichler. Produced by Thomas Tielsch.

This event is FREE. No reservations are required.

We wil meet at 7pm. Screening starts at 7:30pm. Location Tip: Metro: Gallery Place-Chinatown.

Please note the No Show Policy:

As always please update your RSVP in advance of the event if your plan has changed. Cancelling less than three hours before an event counts as a "No Show" since it does not provide adequate time to notify the folks on the waiting list. I generally send out my phone number the night before. If an emergency happens, please call me and let me know. Direct communication is very important as it allows the host to make last-minute adjustments for the capped attendance events.

One "No Show" without a call to me and you will not be able to RSVP to my capped attendance events for three months. Three "No Shows" and you will not be able to RSVP to my events. Let's give everyone who wants to attend the group events the chance. Thank you for your cooperation.
