Summary
This is a powerful documentary that honestly and directly exposes issues of prejudice, racism and class as they effect multicultural communities. Filmed by the people living and working in the areas affected by the L.A. riots, it is a vivid portrayal of the complex urban tapestry where violence and hope live side by side. It has been broadcast all over the world to critical acclaim. Activist filmmaker Maxi Cohen decided the weapon of choice among the protagonists should be a video camera with which to film their lives. Among those participating are: * Lea Edwards, whose concern with raising her son as a black man leads her to film the volatile life of neighborhood gang members. * The Lees, first generation Koreans who lost their grocery store during the riots. Their grief was compounded by accusations that they had set the fire themselves. * Rubin Green, an African American high school student whose family is riddled with drug problems. His determination to rise above his problems led to his participation in the White House Summit on Children and Families. * Francisco Leon, was a migrant worker when he was young. His video concentrates on the plight of Latino street vendors as they are harassed by both the police and gangs. * Frank DePaulo, a policeman whose experience with gang members leaves him cynical about the future of the city. Their honest voices and strong images bring out issues of race and class with compassion. Applauded by educators, dispute resolution mediators, community workers and the press, Inside Voices is certain to stimulate discussion
