Kopkind and the Center for Independent Documentary present a film on the meaning of community

East LA Interchange

“Not just a story about one neighborhood, a funny, insightful and poignant documentary that will transform how you think about living in the United States today.” (Huffington Post)

With filmmaker Betsy Kalin, Kopkind/CID Film Camp Alumna

Saturday, August 3, 7:30 pm — The Organ Barn, Guilford, Vt.

Why do we build community? Can we make a difference together? And can we protect our communities and cultural tapestry in the face of tremendous obstacles? These are questions at the heart of Betsy Kalin’s fascinating documentary East LA Interchange. Telling the story of Boyle Heights—a multicultural, immigrant and working-class neighborhood of Los Angeles that has fought to survive despite highway construction, dispossession and other social and economic changes—the film explores the values of home (housing, health, human solidarity) that transcend geography. A provocative, hopeful film, originally workshopped at Kopkind/CID Film Camp, it has sparked discussion wherever it has been shown, in communities large and small. This is its first Vermont showing. The screening is free, open to the public and will be followed by discussion.

When:  Saturday, August 3, 7:30 pm

Where:  158 Kopkind Road, Guilford, VT
