In memoriam, 2011

In memoriam is a Super-8 film shot in East Los Angeles and Downtown Los Angeles. The film revisits the site of riots that occurred during the Chicano Moratorium on August 29, 1970, which culminated in the death of Mexican-American journalist Ruben Salazar.

The once vibrant thoroughfare of the Latino community is increasingly revealed to be in a process of decay and stagnation - once grandiose cultural buildings being taken over by discount stores.
