About the Event

Join us for a screening of our original film "Art Along the River," where we talk to some of the artists and residents of Frogtown to find out "what is it about this place?"

Directed by Woodbury University filmmaking student and recent graduate Eric Villicana and produced by Elysian Valley Arts Collective, this short documentary film is about the artists that have historically lived in Frogtown, a creative enclave along the LA River and their experiences living and creating in this vibrant neighborhood. 

Artist John Vincent Falchi narrarates the film and interviews several artists and residents in the community to find out why they came to Frogtown, what inspires them about this sliver of land in Los Angeles couched between the river and a freeway and ultimately, why they stay. 

Musician Magmatic appears in the film and will perform live music at 7:00 pm. The film features Frogtown artists Michael Cullen Todd, Nana Chen, Philips Shum, Marc Chiat, Pete Mora, Mary Kudlak, Jessie Dubois, Steve Graziani and Dan Cruz. 

After our film we welcome you to stay for a screening of feature film "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent," starring Nicolas Cage, Pedro Pascal, Neil Patrick Harris and Tiffany Haddish.

Frogtown's Gourmet Tacos will be serving from 7-9 pm. 

The screening is free and begins at sunset. This part of our Frogtown First Fridays series. Parking is extremely limited and we strongly encourage using rideshare services. There is an Uber/Lyft drop off and pick up point at 2902 Knox Ave LA 90039. You can also enter the venue from the LA River Bike Path. www.theriverla.com

This film and screening made possible by a grant from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
