Join us for a special screening of El Barrio Tours, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Andrew J Padilla! We will also be joined by Austin community members who are confronting the effects and challenges of gentrification to discuss connections, opportunities for bridge building, and the future of Austin. El Barrio Tours offers an in depth look at the phenomena of gentrification as seen through the change in the largest Puerto Rican neighborhood in the 50 states; East Harlem. Join Congressman Charlie Rangel , Edwin Torres, writer of Carlito's way, and a host of neighborhood activists, residents, and small business owners, as they debate the past, present, and future of their beloved Barrio. >>>>>> Since premiering El Barrio Tours: Gentrification in East Harlem at the San Diego Latino Film Fest in 2012, Andrew J Padilla has been screening and holding dialogues on gentrification across NYC. In the fall of 2013, he raised 12k from 240 people all over the world to take this film nationwide and begin profiling the effects of gentrification & displacement across America.
