Part omnibus film, part media archeology, part deep-map and city symphony, the project uses Los Sures, a brilliant work of cinema verite directed by Diego Echeverria in 1984, as a starting point for the investigations of more than sixty artists over the course of five years. Its a story of a longstanding Latino community that is defeating displacement and surviving the growth machine. It restores a lost film, remixes local histories, reinvestigates the Southside today, and hopes to reunites a neighborhood around a sustainable future.
There are a few upcoming screening locally, so check out the documentary page for more info on the film and the screenings.
