CineFestival: Whose Barrio? & A Crushing Love
Dir. Ed Morales, 50 min., USA, 2009
Whose Barrio? is an emotionally charged look at the changes in Manhattanâs Spanish Harlem as real estate speculation pushes rents and property values past the affordability for most area residents. Whose Barrio? tackles the thorny question of who gets a say in what some call the neighborhoodâs development, and others itâs gentrification.
A Crushing Love
Dir. Sylvia Morales, 58 min., USA, 2009
A Crushing Love follows the filmmaker as she sets out the answer to how women engaged in consequential social justice activism can also engage in consequential motherhood. In addition, the now grown children of these activist women talk about what it was like having a mother who worked tirelessly for their communities. Activists profiled are: Martha Cotera, Dolores Huerta, Elizabeth âBetitaâ Martinez, Alicia Escalante and Cherrie Moraga.
