The subject of the film is the daily life of the people in this community--their businesses, community centers, religions, and political, cultural and social lives--and the conflict between maintaining ties to traditions of the countries of origin and the need to learn and adapt to American ways and values."--

El Pueblo Se Levanta

Loading...
"In the late '60s, conditions for Puerto Ricans in the US reached the boiling point. Faced with racial discrimination, deficient community services, and poor education and job opportunities, Puerto Rican communities began to address these injustices by using direct action. This film focuses on the community of East Harlem, capturing the compassion and militancy of the Young Lords as they implemented their own health, educational, and public assistance programs and fought back against social injustice. An excellent portrayal of inner city organizing in the late 60s." -- Container.

Beautiful Losers

In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of like-minded outsiders found common ground at a little New York City storefront gallery. Rooted in the do-it-yourself subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip-hop, and graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, created a movement that transformed pop culture.
