The documentary film East L.A. Interchange will makes its world première this Sunday at the Downtown Film Festival L.A. The film is an eight-year labor of love from director Betsy Kalin, and follows the evolution of Boyle Heights and how the neighborhood survived the construction of the largest and busiest freeway interchange in the nation. The film features interviews with people like Xavi Moreno (pictured above in a photo by Chris Chew/Bluewater Media), will.i.am (The Black Eyed Peas), Father Greg Boyle (Homeboy Industries), and Josefina López (Real Women Have Curves). There's also an original song by Raul Pacheco (Ozomatli) and voiceover from Danny Trejo.
