+ OUR RIVER
By Mimi Phan (2016)
In 2016, and in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles’ first Public Art Biennial “Current: LA Water,” the EVAC commissioned a short documentary entitled “Our River” from local filmmaker Mimi Phan. The film, which records through oral histories the historic relationship between the community of Elysian Valley and the Los Angeles River, was selected by the New Filmmakers LA for inclusion in their 2016 film festival, On Location. It was subsequently selected for the LA Harbor International Film Festival and screened as part of the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs event “Great Streets”.
