On my list of to-dos this weekend is to watch Mi Vida Loca, a film I haven’t seen in a long, long time. With Echo Park in the background, and a good movie overall, I’m looking forward to re-watching it now that I live in Echo Park. Here’s a little trailer/overview from the 1993 movie:

25 seconds into the video, you can see how big El Batey used to be at Chicken Corner on Echo Park Avenue (now Chango at the corner and a smaller El Batey shop next door).


How silly for me to forget, the Echo Park Filmmobile is screening Mi Vida Loca tonight (Friday, August 6) at 8:00 pm, 1559 Echo Park Ave at Delta. Perhaps I will see you there!


How is Los Angeles defined? Is it a city, a state of mind or an identity? Hollywood backdrop? What makes it unique? Or is the answer something altogether different? Los Angeles as a Character is a screening that will showcase narrative, experimental and documentary short films and videos with the city of Los Angeles as a peripheral or central, theme, backdrop or character. FILMMAKERS AND CURATOR CHARLES DORAN IN ATTENDANCE!
