When it was founded in the 1960s, the community of Reston was designed to bring the best parts of city living to the verdant, rolling hills of Fairfax County. The high residential density could be built and the offices could be zoned for, but it was much harder for planners to recreate the racial and socioeconomic diversity that occurs naturally in some of the best urban neighborhoods. A new film takes a look at the vision behind Reston and to what extent that ideal has endured to this day.
