A contemporary Latina uncovers her family’s past cemented over by 250 years of L.A. history. Exploring the myths and nostalgia that affect our perceptions of California, L.A. Real traces the relationships between Los Angeles and its three dominant cultures: Mestizo/Mexican/Californio, Native California Indian, and American-European. L.A. Real incorporates painting, photography, video, and original music.
