This special work-in-progress preview of the documentary series, based on William Deverell’s book of the same name, tells the compelling story of the remarkable and often painful transformation of Los Angeles, through a multiethnic and multiracial prism. Following the screening, Hector Tobar of the Los Angeles Times will lead a discussion with filmmaker Walter Dominguez and author William Deverell on the struggles and triumphs that led to the creation of the city and their relevance to present-day Los Angeles.
