East LA Interchange: Talking about community in the U.S.

Broadcast date: 4/14/16

East LA Interchange is a documentary film that follows the evolution of working-class, immigrant Boyle Heights from multiethnic to predominately Latino and a center of Mexican-American culture in the U.S. 

The film shows how the proud community, when threatened, came together to survive the construction of the largest freeway system in North America. East LA Interchange provides a compelling look at what the future of America can be if communities like Boyle Heights work together to secure our nation’s pledge of providing justice for all.

Join host Kris Kington Barker as she speaks with the Director and Producer of the documentary film East LA Interchange Betsy Kalin, Associate Producer Ruby Gómez, and featured guest, Floyd Jeter Jr. as they discuss the documentary film, East LA Interchange, which tells the story of how one neighborhood found its political voice in its fight against freeways.
