Screening: Netflix’s Gentefied

Friday Sep 18 - Oct 16 | 7:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Los Angeles wouldn’t be the city it is today without Mexican Americans and their vibrant, influential culture. Their contributions have been so powerful over the decades, specifically on the West Coast, that Netflix’s latest dramedy, Gentefied, attempts to tackle the complex history of the culture’s evolvement, as well as how a neighborhood in East L.A. is currently grappling with gentrification. Gentrification, realistically-speaking, is occurring at such a rapid pace, especially in Los Angeles, but nothing can defeat a Mexican American family’s strength to stand by each other in times of turmoil. Gentefied demonstrates just that in a very beautiful and moving way.
