  • Will Boyle Heights, the oldest neighborhood in East Los Angeles, survive the next round of challenges from environmental pollution, industrialization, development and gentrification?

East LA Interchange tells the story of how one neighborhood found its political voice in its fight against the largest freeway interchange system in the nation. The film explores how the freeways impact residents, and how local activists are organizing and speaking out for their rights as a working-class, immigrant, community of color.

  • Approx. 57 min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Betsy Kalin, Producer / Director / Research and Writer of East LA Interchange.

All audiences are welcome to join us at this event. Captioning, ASL Interpretation and Audio-Description services will be available upon request by contacting us.
