Art walk has become a mecca for gourmet food trucks.

The independent documentary for theatrical release Masa Revolution: The Backstreet to the American Dream is about how Mexican immigrants, in their quest for the American Dream, have inspired a global street-food phenomenon.

Manuel’s grandmother has operated her lonchera, “El Pescador” from the same spot for 26 years.

Hundreds of traditional taco trucks, or loncheras, dotted around Southern California are operated by immigrant families from South America, and this grassroots story focuses on their ongoing struggle for social justice.  The project is especially timely given our country’s current political and social climate, which feels more like a war on immigrants.
