"La Pulga" World Premiere, June 13 @ 6:30 PM
- Join GenerationEngage and MACLA for the world premiere screening of the film La Pulga, which chronicles, memorializes, and highlights the historic and cultural significance of the San Jose Flea Market, the first and largest flea market in the United States. Before San Jose became the technology capital of the world, the city was known for its Flea Market, which is slated to close in 2010 to be replaced by a transit-oriented urban village. The film explores the conflicts between an existing community's economic livelihood and an environmentally responsible land use plan and reveals the complexity of urban issues and social justice in a changing city.
Following the screening, audience members will discuss the future of the Flea Market with a panel including City of San Jose Council Member Kansen Chu, District 4, City of San Jose; Dennis King, President, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; Chris Lepe, Activist, Citizens for Economic and Environmental Justice; Jesus Banda, San Jose Flea Market vendor.
