Frogtown Futuro is a series of conversations, film screenings, artist projects and workshops with longtime residents, urban planners, architects, environmentalists and artists on the mutation of neighborhoods within cities and the nature of this transformation here, along the LA River in Frogtown. For this program, EPFC will be presenting This is the LA River: Without the Los Angeles River there would be no Los Angeles. A historical and geographical reference point, a place of industry and recreation, the home of herons and toxic trash dumps, flooded and paved over, the subject of poems, art, derision, and protests, the story of the LA River is a long and winding one, open to endless interpretation. This is the LA River invited 21 neighborhood youth between the ages of 14 and 19 to explore the River through the medium of 16mm film. The result is a captivating collaborative documentary that examines the complex past, present, and future of the great waterway of Los Angeles. Also The Sound We See: A Los Angeles City Symphony: In the fall of 2010, youth from across Los Angeles banded together to document the life, rhythm, and movement of the city from their unique perspectives, joining their visions to create a complete 24-hour city symphony. The filmmakers divvied up the day into its two-dozen hours, working in pairs to select and shoot locations that best represented each hour of the day (and night) as one minute of film. The result is a spectacular 24-minute trip through the City of Angels as most have never seen it before.... Program curated by Rebecca Baron.

The Clockshop neighborhood is known as Frogtown or Elysian Valley; what you call it depends on how long you have lived here and to whom you are talking. This narrow strip of land sandwiched between the 5 freeway and the Los Angeles River is undergoing great changes - gentrification to some, urban renewal to others. However you look at it, the community as it has been known is becoming something new. Frogtown Futuro is a series of conversations, film screenings, artist projects and workshops with longtime residents, urban planners, architects, environmentalists and artists on the mutation of neighborhoods within cities and the nature of this transformation here, along the LA River in Frogtown.

Followed by a Q&A with Founder/Executive Director Paolo Davanzo and Operations Director/Youth Film Coordinator Lisa Marr. A portion of the filmmakers will also be present including Anais Hinojosa Téllez, Daniel Garcia, Ismael Garcia, Ellie Parker, Chloe Reyes, Jose Santos, and Penelope Uribe-Abee.

The Echo Park Film Center (EPFC) is a non-profit media arts organization committed to providing equal and affordable access to film/video education and resources. We work to inform, educate and empower our community toward grassroots activism and artistic participation via four channels: a neighborhood microcinema/events space, free and nominal cost media arts education programs, a comprehensive film equipment and service department, and a touring film festival showcasing local established and student filmmakers.
