Gente-fied. Trailer. America Ferrera. Alicia Sixtos. Art Bonilla. Edsson Morales. Rafael Sigler.

GENTE-FIED is a web series that follows seven characters as they deal with the effects of change in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. Some are young Latinxs with bi-cultural tastes, hustling to create spaces in their community that celebrate their Chicanx identities. Others are old-school paisanos and business owners trying to make sense of the changes that are threatening their livelihoods with rent hikes, a housing crisis, and a slow stream of outsiders whose fascination with their barrio [neighborhood] has created a fertile ground for gentrification.

Each episode is seen through the point-of-view of a different character and explores the complications that arise around gente seeking to improve and preserve their community; complications that are rewarding in some situations and corrosive in others. Both subversive and hilarious, GENTE-FIED is an explosion of fusion tacos, LGBTQ raza, micheladas, defiant murals, generational clashes and more, as our characters fight to stay rooted in their changing community.
