5:00p.m. - 6:00p.m.


A neighborhood is made up of people and places. It is defined through the experiences of those who consider it home. And it holds their hopes for the future and their memories of the past. In 2002, the exhibition, Boyle Heights: The Power of Place, celebrated these experiences and memories of Boyle Heights, a vibrant, multiethnic, and multicultural Los Angeles neighborhood. The short film, Crossroads: Boyle Heights (2002), was produced for the exhibition to highlight the voices and faces of this Boyle Heights community. Join producers and curators Sojin Kim and Claudia Sobral, along with Chicano Artivista Quetzal Flores, musician, writer, and producer Rubén Funkahuatl Guevara, and JANM VP of Exhibitions and Art Director Clement Hanami for a retrospective Q&A about the short film and exhibition.

About the Film: The neighborhood of Boyle Heights is located just east of downtown between the Los Angeles River and the city boundary. It has been home to people who have come to Los Angeles from different cities, states, and countries and who brought with them their diverse beliefs, traditions and languages. Through the stories of past and present neighborhood residents, Crossroads: Boyle Heights (2002) explores how the experiences and memories of many generations of Angelenos intersect in this powerful place. Produced by John Esaki, Claudia Sobral, and Sojin Kim.
