Documentary Film Explores Story of San Diego’s Chicano Park

“Under the Bridge” tells the story of San Diego’s Chicano Park and includes interviews with Chicano activists, muralists, musicians and artists, such as Alurista, Enrique Morones, Salvador Torres, Yolanda Lopez, Mario Torero, Celia Rodriguez, Yermo Aranda and Ramon “Chunky” Sanchez.

Chicano Park was created when residents of Barrio Logan objected to the building of a Highway Patrol Sub-station in their neighbourhood.  Earlier this year the park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and celebrates its 43rd Anniversary this weekend.

Indiewire said that by “exploring the marginalization of indigenous Chicano rights, the film re-frames the immigration debate in a provocative way.”
