Crossroads: Boyle Heights

Boyle Heights is a Los Angeles neighborhood, 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, this film explores how the experiences and memories of many generations of Angelenos intersect in this powerful place.
