Nuestras Calles is a short documentary that was filmed and edited late 2016 by our social media editor Elisa. It documents the rapidly changing Barrio Logan area of Southern California and the general consensus regarding gentrification (the process of renovating and improving a house or district so that it conforms to middle-class taste). Locals – from store owners to Brown Berets – are interviewed in order to juxtapose middle class residents of Barrio Logan with those who grew up in its poorer crevices and faced climbing real estate prices and eventual displacement.
