http://www.amazon.com/El-Barrio/dp/B0... (Full 90 minute movie) "El Barrio" is an award-wining social documentary directed by Melissa Eidson that focuses on Mexico City's "hot" centric zone as seen through the eyes of the people who live there. Using a hand-held Mini DV camera, this gritty documentary captures life in the hood and contains illuminating and entertaining interviews from over 20 likable characters, who offer tips about survival and recount stories about life on the run. In a recent interview for Show Business Weekly, Eidson said "I made "El Barrio" because I wanted to take a walk through one of Mexico City's most infamous neighborhoods, TEPITO, a place where the police don't even go. In an environment known to be dangerous and chaotic, we found people who live there by ingenuity, faith, and sheer determination." Eidson has also had several films at the Cannes Film festival in recent years, including El Barrio at the Short Film Corner of the market at Cannes 2006. She also acted in the movie "Battle in Heaven" that was in the Official Selection in competition at Cannes 2005. She recently scooped up the Best
International Documentary Award for El Barrio at the LA portion of the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (NYIIFVF), which will also be screened at a prime-time slot on the opening weekend of the much-anticipated NYIIFVF in Manhattan, Sunday November 12, 6pm at City Cinemas Village East.
