XicanIndie will present independent Chicano, American Latino, Latin American, and Mexican new work from Latino vantages. Here's one highlight:
The Other Barrio, USA
The Other Barrio follows San Francisco Housing Inspector Roberto Morales (Richard Montoya) as he investigates a fatal fire at a residential hotel in San Francisco's Latino Mission District that killed seven people. Raised in the Mission, Morales used to play with neighborhood friends where expensive condos are now going up mostly to house the tech workers inundating his neighborhood. He resents the fact that development is eating away at the old flavor and character of The City and that evictions are driving out longtime residents of the barrio. He suspects arson is behind the fatal blaze but is under pressure from his boss to report fire hazards as the cause.
Denver: March 30 - April 2. Full lineup and details here.
