East LA Interchange : Screening and Discussion

East LA Interchange  tells the story of working-class, immigrant Boyle Heights,   the oldest neighborhood in East Los Angeles. The documentary depicts how this neighborhood has survived through years of 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 post-screening conversation features director Betsy Kalin, Damaris Reyes  (Good Old Lower East Side), Jack Tchen  (A/P/A Institute Founding Director), and George Sanchez  (Professor and Vice Dean for Diversity and Strategic Initiatives, University of Southern California) who will be discussing gentrification and displacement of communities in both Los Angeles and New York.
