Beginning in the 50s, a small Mexican-American community in Los Angeles became the target
for political maneuvering and land acquisition—and the eventual home of Dodger Stadium.
A mix of comedy, satire and outrage, CHAVEZ RAVINE reveals the true story of
how and why the inhabitants of Chavez Ravine lost their homes.
