This past weekend I took another trip to L.A. - My mom says I should just move back! I probably should, but I'll save that for another conversation.
Well, I went to a Salvadoran Student conference that was held in Cal State Los Angeles. It was very educational and very informal on my part. I don't think I ever participated in an event that centers around Central American issues. For my community that is very very important!
This committee that I have been in touch with has been very helpful and has allowed me to film this event. This event consisted of workshops, lectures, special guests, and a art show from Central American folks. It was just a well rounded event. I was really glad to be part of this conference. Being a Salvadoran, its really good to see the community come together and work towards a better future.
As far as how this event works for my documentary... well one of my interviewee talks about different organizations or educational organization coming together. I thought this event would fit perfectly with his conversation. This conference would actually show images of that being true. Even though the event will not be entirely focused-on, but it will be a demonstration of slavi organizations making a difference.
I'm proud of that and glad I was a witness to something positive and inspiring.
I like to thank my homie in NOHO, he came through with the equipment for me to film the event. Much love! It was good to be back for a little bit to see some friends and also a new friend ... wassup brea!
Thats it for now!
