Why do you stay? ¿Por qué te quedas?
Why did you return? ¿Por qué regresas?
Are you or your parents from Mexico or Central America? Do you have Angeleno relatives, friends, colleagues or neighbors that came from the region? How did they get here? What did they bring? Do you know why they left? What made them stay? Or did they go back?
We want to know what it feels like to re-connect with long lost relatives from the Honduran highlands in the heart of Santa Monica? Or, how Los Angeles has changed daily life in cities like San Salvador or Santa Maria de Tavhua, Mexico — places where entire communities have been transformed by “el otro lado” (the other side).
