Discover how freeways impact the working-class and immigrant communities of Boyle Heights and take part in a conversation on why this matters. The documentary tells the story of how this neighborhood found its political voice in its fight against the largest freeway interchange system in the nation and it explores how freeways – a symbol of Los Angeles ingrained in America’s popular imagination – impact Boyle Heights’ residents. East LA Interchange presents a complex picture of issues Boyle Heights’ residents have faced through the years such as access to education, gang violence, immigration policies, environmental pollution and gentrification. East LA Interchange features narration by Danny Trejo (Machete) and interviews with will.i.am (The Black Eyed Peas), Father Greg Boyle (Homeboy Industries), and Josefina López (Real Women Have Curves) as well as an original song by Raul Pacheco (Ozomatli).
