Closing thoughts on our Northern California tour

Our Northern California tour was an intense and invigorating experience. Without doubt, it exceeded our expectations, and the expectations of the organizers of each of the events as well! Each screening was its own unique experience, and it was amazing to see students moved to tears as they explained what the film meant to them. Some actually said that they've never seen anything like Made in L.A., that "it's better than films in theaters!", that Maria (one of the main characters) reminds them of their own mothers, and that, in Lupe or Maria, they have, for the first time found a role model to remember and to inspire them every time they feel like giving up...

After 5 days, 7 screenings and 1200+ miles on the road, we have learned a lot and we have been inspired by how many people and groups have come together for each event. It is a testament to how many layers the film has, and it reaffirms our belief that there's still so very much to do with Made in L.A. After five and a half years in the making, this is the most beautiful part, where we bring the film into the communities that need it, to help educate and empower people. This is, simply, the reason why we made the film - our mission.

Here's a compilation of some photos from the trip. Enjoy!
