Please read the blurb below written by former student, and current co-op member, teacher and hero Penelope Uribe- Abee about the Echo Park Film Center’s Youth Film Screening this Sunday afternoon. The feature length 16mm doc investigates the corner of Sunset and Alvarado. It’s going to be SO GOOD. Free at the Bootleg Theater:
hey beautiful people,
in light of recent events pertaining to gentrification , and the intersections that art has within the context of this plague of urban renewal–I am letting you all know about an amazing event that is coming up! The youth at the echo park film center have spent the last 12 weeks on a feature length film shot on both 16mm and film about Sunset and Alvarado, and the changes the intersection has seen.
