East LA Interchange: Screening and Discussion

March 8, 2016 ▪ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

East LA Interchange tells the story of working-class, immigrant Boyle Heights, the oldest neighborhood in East Los Angeles. Targeted by government policies, real estate laws, and developers, this immigrant neighborhood survived racially restrictive housing covenants, Japanese American incarceration, federal redlining policies, and the building of the largest and busiest freeway interchange system in the nation: the East LA Interchange. The documentary explores how the freeways impact Boyle Heights’ residents: literally, as an environmental hazard and structural blockade and figuratively, as a conversational interchange about why the future of their beloved community should matter to us all. The post-screening conversation features director Betsy Kalin, Jack Tchen (A/P/A Institute Founding Director), and George Sanchez (Professor and Vice Dean for Diversity and Strategic Initiatives, University of Southern California).
